At Spin Industries Co., we work with titanium day in, day out. It's a truly difficult material to craft well, but we choose to work it. And in doing so we have come to learn its deepest secrets and know it profoundly. As a result, we've many reasons to believe in titanium as the optimal material for bikes.
But the reason we find most compelling, from the point of view of our customers, is this. If you are being paid to ride, ride whatever. But if you are paying to ride, ride titanium.
Why's that? Because only a hand-crafted titanium bike looks as good in 10 or 20 years as it does the day you get it. Whilst your brand new plastic/carbon bike is fashionable today, its manufacturer is already preparing to launch the updated model that is deliberately designed to make your bike outdated. Instantly!
And whilst every carbon, aluminium and steel bike has a limited lifespan, and hence a short term, limited warranty, we sell every single one of our titanium bikes with a lifetime frame warranty.
The SPIN ROTOR race bikes in detail
Despite a wide range of rider heights, team members are all racing on stock sizes and geometries, whilst choosing between the Mk III Spitfire and the Mk X Lightning for their preferred ride & handling characteristics.
Titanium frames plus custom Ti & carbon componentry
For us there is simply no better material than aerospace grade titanium alloy from which to craft light, responsive, lifetime durable, beautiful bike frames. But we don't stop there. Whilst other, more famous makes begin & end their love of titanium with the frame, we optimise our bikes with as much specifically-tuned Ti componentry as we know how. Ti seatposts, headsets and stems add so significantly to ride quality we reckon you haven't experienced a proper Ti bike until you try this magic sweet-spot combination. Our racers have all come to us from multiple seasons on state of the art carbon, and can't believe how good we've managed to make metal. In short, they love it! Ask them. Find out more »
Custom hand-built race wheels
Custom wheels are cycling's equivalent of the bespoke hand-made leather shoe. Built perfectly, just for you and no one else. With lots of colour, weight & rim profiles to choose from, and at prices that make ordinary, mass produced, machine built wheels look rather expensive, the obvious question is why wouldn't you think about letting us build your next pair?

Pedal power: efficiency through ovalisation
We're big fans of metal as you might have already spotted. So carbon cranks, just like carbon frames, simply don't do it for us for a number of reasons, from aesthetics to performance / weight ratio. Thankfully our friends at Rotor Bike Components are on board, and together with their beatifully machined cranks the team bikes benefit from oval Q-Rings. You can read all about the performance benefits all over the net, but one thing we don't hear mentioned quite so often is just how kind they are on your knees. Combined with the Q-Rings unique ability to dial in perfectly with your ride style, power spin circle and frame geometry, they're the perfect compliment to our full Speed Metal line up.
