Few contemporary bicycle component manufacturers dare to make bold statements with the appearance of their wares. Matte black carbon is en vogue and bold paint schemes seem to be at least temporarily out of favor. Titanium frames enjoy steady, but metered popularity; titanium components, on the other hand, can be downright difficult to track down. In a determined move, ControlTech created their TiMania series to fill this void and add a little flair to the modern bicycle.
With its unmistakable titanium sheen, this TiMania seat collar offers to add a touch of elegance to the bicycle's seattube junction. Yet not merely an idle showpiece, this accurately machined clamp flawlessly fulfills its duty securing the seatpost. Two replaceable articulating aluminum cylinders ensure optimal alignment of the titanium clamp bolt, reducing potential stress on the bolt and accommodating normal variances in seat tube diameters. Subtle laser-etched graphics adorn the medium-polished titanium surface.
