From the mid ’80s through the late 90’s, Titanium was considered the ultimate frame-building material, and Merlin was one of the first to bring it to market, making it an iconic brand. For the past twenty years, carbon fiber has held the mantle, yet for all it offers nothing can match the unique look and feel of titanium.
Dean Bikes began in 1989 when two bicycle racers set out to produce the most technically advanced bikes in the world. With this goal in mind, each and every frame is hand built using only the finest material: cold-worked stress-relieved 3/2.5 aerospace titanium. To this day, Dean continues to expanded its product line with custom frame options, diverse color choices, and unique build kits.
A lot of companies try to create symmetrical airfoils, making the leading edge the same as the rear. That makes the leading and trailing edge of the rims rather blunt. We put heavier emphasis on how the air hits the back half of the rim. When the down tube is behind the tire, the rim/tire/frame acts as one giant airfoil.
