2009 S&M L.T.F.

Custom flatland frame

Not sure of the exact year of this custom frame.  I contacted S&M but they didn't have records of when it was built.  I believe the decals on it were from later production so I'm guessing this could be from 2009-2010?  Let me know if anyone has a better idea of when this may have been built.  Thanks!


20.25"TT and wedge post are custom features, all other geometry is standard LTF.  Zinc finish looks awesome!

Special thanks to Joe (hboost) for the frame & cranks and to Johnny (detroitjohnny) for the custom machining work for the gyro tabs!

Here's unofficial LTF specs I found for the production run (not from S&M site but reads like it may have come from an original S&M spec release):

Butted/Air-hardening SuperTherm tube set: 

SuperTherm is a proprietary superthermophillic (heat-loving) alloy, developed in partnership with the U.S. Steel Alliance. The composition of Chromium, Molybdenum, and Vanadium with an unprecedented 217 ksi ultimate tensile strength makes this alloy actually gain strength through a metallurgical transformation in the heat-affected zone as a result of welding or brazing. SuperTherm is highly temper-resistant, resulting in an 11% increase in fatigue life and a 20% increase in impact strength over Heat-treated 4130. The increased mechanical properties of SuperTherm allow for incredibly strong, yet lightweight frame designs with that legendary feel of steel ride quality.
