    Titus Frame - Seeking Information

    I just picked up this Titus frame. Quite stunning workmanship and looks very cool. Is there a link to identify the year it was build and confirm the frame size?
    Any information on this frame will be appreciated.

    Looks like the 2008 Racer-X LX, with tapered headtube. Blue was the base model that came equipped with Shimano LX.
    Goodbye '95 ZJ. Just so you know, transfering box of left behind womens panties to next truck. Thank you ZJ!

    I'll go with it being a 2003 to 2005 model.

    Your link is ti model.

    All 2004 have 1-1/8" headtube. Picture of OP shows tappered headtube. At least looks like tappered headtube.

    Img search results showed tappered appeared on the 2008 models.

    It's about an '04 model, maybe '03. IIRC, the '05 ('06?)models started using some carbon on the chainstays.
    You can't buy happiness. But you can buy a bike. And that's pretty close.

    The carbon stays came in 2007. This looks to be a 2005-2006. The racer-X was a great bike. The stays were prone to cracking so keep that in mind in 2018. Honestly, that was the last great bike Titus made...
