Hadn't considered that, particularly as I had seen similar Triton diagrams on Flickr e.g.

If Dmitry would like it, moderator please delete the image I posted. Thanks.

Even if somebody steals the design... nobody can steal the quality of Triton Its just awesome. So nice welds and stuff.

if its been posted around it might be fine,i know some information about frames is hard to find,ion my motorbike frames you cannot find this type of detail in a drawing,it stop people copying the design.

design theft is always gonna be around.

i dont think a unicycle frames going to matter,but if some ones got the time and skills they could use that picture to build "triton" copy with out spending the money on buying one.
they could even sell them and people would think there a triton.

im quite handy with metal fab and tig welding so i could make myself one of them frames and know one would know the difference.

I imagine TIG welding titanium would be pretty hard... If you used steel or aluminium, most people would be able to tell the difference just by the weight. Anyway, if someone seriously wanted to copy the design they could just buy one and measure it themselves!

Specs of unicycle frames are very ultra top secret science, passed on from druids mouth to druids ear.

50g lighter than the KHU ti hub.
tiny flanges so you need to remove the bearings to thread the spokes.

Ughhh!
That sounds like a crappy design flaw, why would they make the hub like that? If not removed correctly.... the bearings can be damaged.... no?

They did it in order to save 50g of weight. The flanges are less likely to brake too.
