Headset: 1-1/8" EC (External Cup) (No worries about trying to pick an internal headset spec that will be around 10 years from now)
Bottom Bracket: 68mm English (No worries about trying to pick a BB spec that will be around 10 years from now, either)

NOTE: Habanero 29'er frames/bikes can be set up as a 27.5+ if you keep the tire size below 75mm / 3"
45% lighter than 4130 steel yet 2% higher strength to weight results in a lighter yet stronger frame
74% higher strength to weight than 6061 - T6 Aluminum
Twice the elongation of steel, 5x that of Aluminum means less likelihood of failure in an accident
Any failure will likely not be catastrophic as with a carbon fiber frame,
A titanium frame is much more impact-resistant and impervious to temperature, sweat, scratches than a carbon fiber frame
A titanium frame has a virtually unlimited fatigue life, unlike Aluminum
No corrosion, unlike steel - or oxidation, unlike aluminum allows the frame to last virtually forever.
Titanium-specific design used in all Habanero frames means reduce lateral flex to nearly the same level as a big-tube aluminum frame without affecting the ride quality
A brushed finish that can be maintained to look like new with a Scotchbrite pad and a few minutes effort. No more crying over chipped or scratched paint!
Specializing in only 3Al/2.5V titanium frames.
Manufactured at an aerospace spin-off with decades of experience in precision titanium fabrication.
Materials, machining, and welds are all world-class - you don't give up quality
Tubing and dropouts designed for real-world longevity and strength, rather than saving a few grams on the scales
Designed around components (headset and bottom bracket) that have stood the test of time as reliable, non-creaking, and easily replaceable anywhere in the world
