    This bike keeps getting better or maybe its just me not sure. I never see another in the trail which is pretty amazing because it is a great bike.

    Specs:
    - Medium Titus El Guapo 29er frame in White
    - Rockshox Revelation XX Fork (140/110 dual position)
    - Rockshox Monarch XX Shock
    - Rockshox XLoc Sprint Remote
    - Stans Flow EX wheel set
    - Shimano XT Shifters, Brakes, Cassette, Rear Derailleur
    - RaceFace Respond Crankset

    - Truativ Hussefelt 60mm stem
    - RaceFace Half Nelson Grips

    I've been busy lately, but when I get back to riding more, I will post more pictures and updates!

    How about a 2005 Switchblade 650b conversion. I was very surprised with the result....this turned out to be a really sweet ride....a keeper for sure!

    Dropper post?....another $400 into a 10 year old bike?....maybe when they come down in price. Besides dropper posts have to be straight, I like the weight distribution with a offset post. I will study dropper posts in the meantime. Thanx

    You can find good deals in some website like eBay. But if you try it you gone love it and justified the price tag. I use it all the time and really I came to the conclusion of how in the hell I ride without one before. Is that good. And my rig still under 25 pounds with it Not bad. I think so !!!!

    Protsi,

    Yup, you had me seriously do my homework cuz I want to increase the usefulness and safety of my old school ride. Because the Switchblade is significantly different from standard continuous seat-tube frames, my choices for a dropper post are rather limited. After much study and measuring, I settled on and purchased a KS Suspension LEV DX 31.6/335/100 which should fit perfectly. Getting the ODI grips that integrates with the remote. Thanks Bro! I'm jazzed!

    No matter how old is the rig. Is the geometry that make you feel great every time you ride it. If is the one any update just make it more enjoyable.

    I believe your next move looking the pic is go 1x 10 to go easy with the spending or 1x11

    Protsi,

    I'm not sure about the 1 x 11, it's 3 x 11 now. I do a lot of "out the door" fast street and trail training to keep my engine in shape for the more serious ups and downs. I use every gear on the bike, especially the large chain ring. The 650b conversion dramatically increased the speed range of my Switchblade....I love it! I'll study the "one by" approach, but for now I've got a unique sub-27lb "does everything" old-school ride that I enjoy thoroughly. Thanx again Bro

    P.S. The dropper is primarily to increase safety on descents, like everyone else, I've ruined a few helmets had a bunch of close calls....lol

    I did it because less parts to fail. Having 33 in front and 42 to 10 cassette. The combination is awesome. In 3 ring fry sis you have to many gears overlapping. Is no real reasond to have it. That's why all the big manufacturers are opting that route. Try to test one in a bike shop to be able to compare yourself.

    Tell me about that rear shock setup. Is that the TALAS linkage with a new mounting hole?

    Oweya,

    Can't get a full rebuild kit for the 8.25" x 2.0 Fox Float R TALUS....Fox doesn't support it anymore, and nobody makes an 8.25" shock so I went with a 7.875" x 2.00 2015 Fox Float CTD and looked all over the country for a set of rocker arms for a 7.875" shock, Titus did make these at one time. No one had a set they were willing to part with, so I machined & bushed the 8.25" arms to properly fit the 7.875" Float CTD. Turned out perfect, couldn't be happier, much better than stock setup cuz the Fox Float CTD is much superior to the old Fox Float R TALUS....much lighter too. Going with a dropper seat post and 1 x 11 driveline to finish out the 650b Switchblade conversion, parts are in the mail....totally jazzed.

    Protsi,

    Pulled the trigger on a 1 x 11 driveline. Going with a 170mm XT crank with a Oneup 32T ring and a 11 - 45 XT/Oneup cassette (Oneup 45T Shimano Conversion kit). This driveline saves enough weight to make-up for the KS Suspension LEV DX 31.6/335/100. Changed to ODI grips to cleanly integrate the KS remote....super slick. Thanx for the "push"

    Sound awesome. But take in consideration a cassette with 10 tooth ring for low gear , the smaller 10 sprocket help a lot when your big chainring is under 34.

    Protsi,

    I wanted to stay Shimano, that's what I know how to tune. I just copied the gearing Pivot is using on their new 27.5 Switchblade but went 32T instead of 30T up front. Check out the Oneup driveline products.

    I know one up really well But I can't live without the 10. For me shimano and sram is the same just different colors. Returning to the main dish I believe you gone enjoy your ride a lot more having the new benefits of the updates!

    Rescued another Titus Racer X frame from ebay last month. A 2007 Racer X Limited Edition. Parted out one of my other old bikes and built the Titus up with the components. The only issue being that it was listed as a 16" small and I neglected to find out if it was an 80 or 100 frame. Turns out to be an 80 and I only had a 100 fork to use. Actually it doesn't feel all that much different than my 2004 Racer X 100, or my 2012 X-Alloy. Just a bit shorter top tube length. Still rocks the XC trails regardless!
