Curtis Bikes' New Thumpercross Steel Downhill Bike - Bespoked Show 2019
@Compositepro: No it doesn't. T45 is the material on plans to build reproductions because the original construction materials are very rare and expensive to source due to a lack of skilled labour to produce the wooden structure properly The structure of the original planes was wooden framework box construction for the fuselage and wings with plywood panels around the cockpit, fabric covering the wings and fuselage and an aluminum cowling for the engine. Aside from the machine guns, the engine itself and the bombs, the only other significant use of steel present were the control cables and bracing wires.

T45 is simply an aerospace grade because the original specification for it was written in 1948 by the military for Aerospace application in the UK. 4130 steel's specification comes from 1950 and was written in the USA. Neither are particularly strong steels compared to some of the ones developed since then. In terms of tensile strength T45 ranges from 700 to 900 MPa. Meanwhile a modern steel like Reynolds 853 (which is a heat-treated air hardening steel which gets stronger in the weld zone as it cools) has a tensile strength in the order of 1250 to 1400 MPa.

Day One Randoms - Sea Otter 2019
@justanotherusername: JD Components Co, LTD is the actually company name. Tranz-X was the "brand name" they created to "upscale" their components for the north american market around 1994. The company itself was making bike parts from the late 80s forwards. I think I might still have my original JD Components QR wheel skewer set still which I bought in 1992 and which still functions perfectly. Its the same thing as Joytech and Novatec, CST and Maxxis, and so forth.

@Bflutz625: That's who's making the posts you find on lower level Specialized. My 2016 Fuze Comp 6Fattie has a rebranded Tranz-X post.

1000cc for that air tank is precisely the limit to not require being hydro-tested every five years in canada and the usa under TC/DOT regulations for metal pressure vessels. But that being said, you could already get pump regulators and hose adapters for paintball and diving tanks to run pneumatic tools, pump tires, etc.

Walmart Launches High-End 'Viathon' Bike Brand
@friendlyfoe: You could have just replied its a natural condition. You didn't need to write all that down and confirm that you have to practice daily.

I would point out that while Intense might have once used the name for a bicycle, they don't actually own a trademark to it and for that matter, the designation was used for decades before Intense existed. The US Army in particular loves the designation, even to the extent that in WW2 they simultaneously used it for a helmet, a mortar, a rifle, a carbine, a sub machinegun, and a flamethrower all of which were individual infantry weapons and none of which were actually the same thing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M1
