    here's my HCR SS. yes, it's SS only. such a fine bike. i think it's about 22 lbs. the pic was after a much-deserved cleaning- it was right after a 44 mile race w/ roughly 8,000 feet elevation gain. the bike loved it. i didnt fare so badly either! the HCR was sent to me from Titus after my beloved grey riddler broke. RIP.

    Yup, u r right. It's the cancer fund pink edition. I know they come with matching hubs too but over here they cost an arm and a leg.

    My "Unapplied Motolite" - Updated pix...

    Here are some updated pix of my Moto. Health issues have prevented me from riding this season. During my downtime I've contracted a wicked case of UGI. Not quite over it yet. Still wanna replace the cranks, brakes, and heatset. I'm hoping to be back on the bike end of August or early Sept. Thanks for looking.


    cheers,
    simp

    Hahaha form over function. I agree it looks kinda weird with slicks on but it rolls faster on road (where I normally ride on weeknites due to time/location constraints. Rest assured, she's a different beast altogether on weekends.

    I bought the frame used because I can't afford a new one, so there are some cosmetic scratches and stuff. I figure that it is a mountain bike and I would scrape it up anyway. I am super excited. Coming off my hardtail, I didn't have any issues. I need to figure out my propedal settings though.

    There is also a loud crack with the bike is really being thrashed, but I think that it is the suspension or a chain slap noise that I am not used to.

    That loud crack very well could be the rear der. bangin on the horst link. Very common among the Titae. Try wrapping a peice of inner tube around the knuckle and see if the sound goes away. If it does, immediately upgrade to SRAM drivetrain bits. You won't be disappointed.

    cheers,
    simp


    Edit: I just noticed you're using dual control levers. In that case, upgrading to SRAM rear der. and triggers would also require new brake levers. Bummer. So, if the noise goes away, leave the piece of inner tube wrapped around the knuckle and enjoy the silence....

    Steve. Great looking bike.

    The PP settings on the RP3 were always a bit of an enigma to me. The RP23 is a nice upgrade as the PP to open is one flick. What's more, the PP settings are more distinct, and the stroke is more even.

    As a user of both, I would slap a RP23 on that great sled straight away.

    If you do, or don't, flip that shock over. Lots of gunk will build up in the PP lever in that position.

    Honestly, I don't see myself changing in mid ride. I would rather have a set it and forget it mentality. I ride rocky single track in Central NJ in the summer and ride fast singletrack at school in NC. I will have different settings for each area, I imagine. I have put my RP3 in all PP settings I thought that they felt the same. I am sure that they will start to feel different as I get more time on my bike.

    Also, I am 205 lbs. Any 205 lb RX riders what to share their preferred air pressure?

    One of the "upgrades" of the 23 is that the PP setting are very distinct. The lever goes from open to pro-pedal only. The dial on top of the lever sets the level of PP, that is the one you can ususally set and forget.

    Also, the 23 lock out is better than the 3. You may not feel the need for that where you typically ride.

    Either way, the RX is fantastic.

    Good news and Bad news...

    I found a crack in the frame I bought of eBay so that blue Racer-X was disassembled before she even got so see dirt. Such a young death....

    So, I couldn't be bikeless. I made the desicion last night to stop being so cheap and pony up for the bike. My Grandfather passed away in May and he was all about his Ham Radios and I am all about my bike, so I dipped into the inheritance a little. I just got back from Campmor at about 3. Here is me at about 6pm today, I would have kept going but my CK headset I ordered hadn't come in yet...

    This is my Racer X from December 2003, the pic was taken at Hammerhead Bikes right before delivery. It's never been that clean again. I still have this bike, it's undergone minimal changes as it's first couple of years was for racing only. Now it's doing some trail duty. The frame is solid, the only problems I've had is the 03 XTR stuff that was bolted to it.




    Here's a couple from last weekends Camp Eagle TMBRA race.

    Yeah it sure looks nice, reminds me of my dog Chester (he is white w/black and his face is a black mask, in case you give a sh*te). Strange that they did not go with the anodized for '08 (that's what I thought that I was getting, '07 model anyway). Paint seems to chip easier on this frame than the anodized, forgot to get a chainstay protector - D'OH!!. Got a good, hard ride in last night, as per usual on Wednesday Team Heinous rides, so that's a good break in. Anyway, got to thank Dirt Rag magazine for this ride.

    In what regard are you thanking DirtRag? Are you the winner of the ML they had several months back? If so, huge congrats! Of all the bikes I've seen in those sweepstakes, the ML has by far the most kewl factor. Made even better with the '08 pain job. Hope it holds up OK.

    Man, I was on a group ride with my ML the other night. ALL the other dudes were on single speeds. All of which, except one were full rigid. They all poked fun at my ride cuz compared the their bikes it looked massive. I was kinda laughin too. Once we got on the trail I was climbin stuff that they tried to climb, only to step aside as Rabies on his ML went cruzin past. Same thing on the bumpy stuff, they're standing up, takin a beatin while I'm sittin and pedalin' through. Ah sweetness...
    Yes, I won that contest, issue #126, specifically.

    Your ride sound like the exact opposite of my group ride, well, not exact. Most the riders show up on SS, I think that my ML was the only full sussser. These guys can crank up the steep sh*te on their SS's and I just cruised along in the middle pack, til I pulled up a bush to wizz on, then I was at the back of the pack. I would have been on my, SS but the ML came in that morning and it was screaming to be ridden, had to be done, sure you understand. Not one to pass up a screaming beauty, I had to go. And go I did. Anyway, where do you ride at?

    Hope this works. Notice the carbon fiber rocker arm, other than the paint, seems the only difference. Oh yeah, and RP2 instead of the RP3...

    Rotten 1, that is one sweet ride. Seriously, I think the best paint-job on a Titus yet. To answer your question about where I ride, I'm up in Wisconsin and spend most of my time riding around the Green Bay area. There are several nice trail around the area but my riding time is running short with deer hunting season right around the corner. Pretty much relegated to night riding now. Oh well, I find night rinding quite a bit of fun. Very few people around here do it so you really own the trails.

    cheers, and hope you're enjoying that new ride....

    Careful, don't think riding and hunting mix.
    Hey Jed, check it out, I just done bagged me one of them there mountian bikers.
    Shucks Cleetus, thems bikers is too skinny to be good eatin'! Jes chuck it in them there bushes!
    Woah, awful attempt at humor. Was riding last year and some dudes were training dogs nearby, blasting off shot guns, just too close to the trail for my comfort.

    At first the Titus felt odd to me, different than my previous full susser (Jamis Dakar) and a lot different that what I have been riding lately (Jake the Snake - cross bike), but after about 4 rides, I've been groovin on it. The front end feels like it tracks better and the front wheels stays on the trail better than than the Jamis. Usually have a section on local trail Three Bears where I need to stop becasue the climb is too steep, but I cleaned the entire trail on the Titus. The suspension is much nicer, especially the lockout on the rear. Feels odd when I leave the position open on the RP2 on flat ground, almost as if I have a flat rear tire. Really starting to like the ride.

    Oh my...it's Ti!!!

    For those of you who didn't get to see them in in the "pullin trigger" link! I've added a few in here as well! The bike was transformed from a 2006 Alum. ML to 2008 Ti ML. The weight change is somewhere around a 1lb!?

    A special thanks to Orthorex, BikerBob and Billy!

    Enjoy!

    Hi,

    Actually, As far as I know, only two greens here in Manila, or actually in the Philippines as the exclusive distributor, only imported 2 of greens (so far). Except of course for others bought from other country, but no news or sightings yet

    My latest rig

    My return to a full sus after 12 years.....cant believe which cave I was in all these time...

    ML II after bulking up to an AM machine. Rides like a dream now as compared to an initial anorexic XC setup that compromises the whole ride quality.

    Can you tell me more about your experience w/ El Guapo? I would like to know more about it. Can you conpare it to a Moto-Lite or similar bike? Is this the first big hit bike you have had? Does it classify as a big hit bike to you?

    It's a do it all bike to me. It climbs great, descends like a dream, and the overall fit fits me great. I've ridden 2 Coves before this one. A G spot and a Hustler XC. The terrain around here is steep loose and rocky. The trails really beat bikes up, and this one is one solid riding bike. It could be a big hit bike, it could definitely take the abuse.

    I've ridden a moto-lite and chumba xcl, both really great bikes as well. I think the 6 inches of travel front and rear makes sense on the el guapo. I was putting way to many headset spacers on my hustler (5 inch travel) so the 160mm up front made it a lot more comfortable.

    I just picked up my first Titus Racer-X (used but in great shape). It's actually my 1st full suspension bike since i've been using the Trek 9900 OCLV since 1995...



    1996 Titus Racer-x - women's Small 80
    Fox 80 RLT
    Fox RP23
    SRAM X-O Trigger Shifters and Rear Der.
    XTR Front Der, 11-34 Cassette, and Chain
    DT Swiss Wheelset 240s Hubs / XR 4.1d rims
    Specialized Titanium 130mm Stem
    FSA Carbon Handlebars and seatpost

    I don't have any pedals for it yet so I stuck on my old Shimano 600 pedals circa 1987. I plan on installing XT PD770 Pedals eventually

    I'm still in the process of fitting myself on the bike...so stem orientation (and possibly different stem) along with cutting the HB down about an inch from each side.


    As shown = 24.93 lbs.



    I plan on
