18” Frame of Russian origin apparently.

A couple of years ago I encountered a foreign student riding a fixed wheel bike with a custom built titanium frame. He was from Eastern Europe or Russia (I forget which), and he explained to me that where he's from, there are builders who will create custom titanium frames that are relatively cheap compared to typical Western prices.
