    Man, dulyebr, the old Motolite looks great! Can't believe that it is a 2005.

    I just moved to a 2011 5-Spot and am thinking of re-building my Motolite as a lightweight racer, much like what you have done.

    Do it! Really fun having two bikes; although the ML is my only bike at the moment.

    Just finished my Titus FTM build. It's not very blingy, but it's ridable and that's the biggest thing. A quick ride around the retention pond in my neighborhood tells me that it's very well-balanced, quick accelerating, and climbs well. Can't wait to get it on the trails.

    Bling is overrated! I'd steal your bike any day!

    I like your cable routing for the front FD. I should try that someday. Mine still goes through the rocker arm, yours looks like it should shift much "smoother".

    Good job!

    I don't ride often in winter but this was after a tromp in 4" of fresh powder... 35lb EGs are horrible as XC bikes in snow

    @madkrie: you might have some clearance issues with the Shimano high band FDs. Test fit one before you buy.

    I don't have an X Carbon, but on my FTM(which should be fairly similar), I've had issues with the Shimano XT HighClamp FDs. The cable would rub the seatstays.

    I switched to an XT Low Clam FD and the cable cleared the seatstays just fine. However, I didn't like the way the cable *almost* rubbed on the seat tube.

    I'm now running a SRAM FD and it looks like the cable routing of my FTM was specifically designed with this FD in mind.

    ps.. .shifting was much smoother with my XT fd than with my SRAM XX FD but that was also probably since i was running 22-32 gearing with the XT and am now running 24-38 gearing with the XX.

    madkrie, the Carbon frames use a high clamp 34.9 FD.

    The seat tube flares a bit at the bottom so a low clamp does not fit.

    Also, high and low clamp derailleurs have the cable clamps in different locations, requiring the housing stop on the seat tube to be angled differently.

    High clamp FDs need the cable pointing toward the driveside.

    Low clamp FDs need it pointing toward the left side.

    El Guapo rides again.

    I cracked my frame last September riding in Whislter. I did not notice it until I was home, so I'm not sure when it happened, but it could very well have been the GLC drop. That one is so fun to go big off of.

    Titus Bike Pr0n-glc1b.jpg

    Titus offered be a pretty good deal on a front triangle, but the new tapered head tube would have meant getting rid of 2 forks and headsets that I have $$$ invested in.

    So instead I had the frame welded (top tube / head tube junction), heat treated, and powder coated. Also installed new frame bearings, new brake lines, new shifter cables and housings, new seat post hydraulic line, new wheel bearings.

    My Crank Brothers wheels also did not survive the whistler trip, and looking back, I should not have expected them to. Oh well. Next time I take a proper park bike.

    I'm just glad to have it back on the trail!

    Very nice rebuilt... I like to mount my lights centered too
    That battery location would seem "default" for the EG due to the way the tubes are curved and impossible to place elsewhere..

    I built up an El Guapo last night and I have fallen in love. I was nailing tech lines and hitting jumps i never was able to do on my old bike. Once I weigh the bike and get my brake lines trimmed, replace my chain and 18 year old FD I will take quality pictures and do a proper bike check. I am running a 180mm domain up front and a marz roco wc in the back.

    Titus El Guapo (Singapore)

    Took 21 days from order to my door...
    Frame came with a dented headtube but an easy enough fix!

    Already went for 1 ride but trail pict will have to wait!

    Awesome bikes! And great job with the custom colored EGs...that original rocker link is a bit fugly on the raw EG. I might try and do that, too!

    here's my new medium V3, I just switched over all the parts from my 2009 large EG, only headset, fork and saddle are new.
    Partslist is under the pic link.

    Great bikes! You guys have added some nice personal touches.

    Here's mine, 2010 FTM. She has gone through several upgrades but I like how she's finally set up. She really handles the local single tracks, climbs real well and is fun going down the fire roads. I may tweak it a a little more but not much more left for the trails around here.

    The fork is undergoing some mods and tweaks to get it a bit more compliant but I like the 140mm travel. I may add a dropper post. Love the bike.

    Ruegamer Uberlight Titus Racer X

    Last week I built up this bike, using a Ruegamer carbon frame I bought on eBay. The frame was custom-built here in Arizona a year before the carbon Titus Racer X went into production.

    I'm about to replace the Rock Shox Monarch 2.1 shock with a 180-gram DT Swiss XR carbon shock, which will save some weight and provide a lockout. Then the bike will be done except for machining out an XTR M970 front derailleur clamp so it will go around the fat seat tube, although I usually prefer riding without a front derailleur so installing one is a low priority.













    This bike rides beautifully. I'm amazed at how comfortable it is and how well it climbs.

    There are lots of thorns here, so I always use Slime tubes, even though they weigh 320 grams apiece. With them installed, the bike as it's shown here weighs 21 1/2 pounds.

    Here's the bike with the new 180-gram DT Swiss XR-180 carbon shock I installed today. Dialing in the air pressure and adjusting the rebound was easy, and this shock has a lockout for sprinting and hard climbing that works perfectly.

    This bike rides so well it amazes me.

    The last upgrade for it that I'm working on is building a RockShox SID fork.

    For anyone interested, there's a thread about the bike in the Weight Weenies forum, titled Ruegamer Uberlight carbon Titus Racer X.

    Finally finished!!!

    Hey everyone, finally finished building my very first AM MTB. Been a long 6-month project, mostly dead time waiting for the damned fork (advice: do NOT pre-order a Marzocchi fork, get what's in stock. I ordered the 55 RC3 Evo Ti in July (no U.S. stock) and the US still didn't have any by February. Ridic!). I'm not gonna lie, she's beautiful as a virgin, not sure if I want to ride her . I also want to say that this would have never been possible without the support and guidance from this site; thanks to all that helped me out very much. I owe you all a beer. In case you notice, I'm a huge Pittsburgh Penguins fan, so I had some fun with part colors to show a little pride. Anyhow, here she is:
    EG Large (measuring 13.6" BBH)
    Marzocchi 66 RC3 Evo Ti 180mm
    CCDB Air
    XTR drivetrain and brakes w/ice rotors 203F/180R
    Xpedo pedals
    CK headset and BB
    Easton Havoc wheels/stem/seatpost
    Schwalbe Fat Alberts (tubeless rear)
    Token seatpost clamp
    ODI grips
    Loaded Precision straight bar
    Terry saddle (for now)

    Had a few upgrades, shot with the training wheels though, should've snapped it with the I9s. Time for a repost...

    Here's my El Guapo... NOT FINISHED YET. Waiting for a Durolux RC2. And I just got the 30.9 reverb today.

    Not really bling blingy but it's a great bike thus far. Still adjusting to the frame's suspension characteristics and the Monarch's feel though.

    Titus Bike Pr0n-p4pb9604168.jpg
    Titus Bike Pr0n-p4pb9604167.jpg

    BB's pretty low with a 150mm - it's at 12.5", hoping it gets to hit 13 point something inches when I have the Durolux on it. The big diff for me, aside from the suspension, is the weight. DANG it's light. Dropped a pound or two from my GT Force with the same components. And the geo is just great - EVEN if I still haven't felt the 67* of the HTA.

    Went from 2x9 to 1x9 and did a shake down run along with some suspension tuning. Here she is in her final form. I don't run a GoPro all the time.

    Thanks guys! I'm blushing lol it truly is a great bike, can do it all!
    Have a few ideas in mind, need to order some parts and fine-tune the set-up. I'll do a complete post in the EG Set-Up thread soon. My old set-up is in there with the white Marz 66.
    I'm also rebuilding an old MotoLite, finally got new pivot bearings so it's go-time to get that running!

    I bought it just as On One/Planet X took over and this was the 2nd last medium they had in stock. I'm not sure how many Ti frames were built up (maybe someone with a bit of inside knowledge could tell us), but I haven't seen any others around.

    No official measurement as of yet, but haven't had any issues with it.

    Just picked up an ebay ti Rockstar frame, and built it up with some unworthy spare parts. So far, this thing ROCKS...no pun intended.

    Soon to be purchased 02' Quasi-Moto

    Hello All,

    I'm looking for any good info and opinions on my soon to be purchased 02' Titus Quasi-Moto bike! Here is what I know:

    It is a cross between downhill and cross country. It has cross country frame but bomber forks that lock out for uphill climbs. Most cross country forks have about 4 inch travel these have about 9 inch travel. Much much much lighter than downhill bike. Price will be $350. How does it sound/look?

    I'm currently riding a 95' Cannondale F600! I love the bike! But I'm looking for a FS Bike now!

    That fork doesn't have anywhere near 9 inches of travel. More like 4 or 5 inches. Hard to tell exactly how much travel it has without knowing the specific model. $350 is decent as long as the bike doesn't need much work outside of a basic tune up.

    Sup guys, just figured I'd post my bike here since this thread and subforum seem pretty dead. I LOVE my titus, been riding it for 2 seasons now and it has not let me down yet. I use it for a trail bike and have ridden some gnarly terrain on it. Heres a pic of it from last year just after I built it.



    It's got some higher rise bars, XT front disk brakes, crankbrothers candy pedals, a KS i7r seat dropper on it now, with more goodies on the way.

    Protsi, that thing is awesome.. and LIGHT. I bet that thing flys on singletrack and mobs on people in the technical climbs. Mines sub 30# using a bathroom scale, but I have not been able to accurately measure it yet.

    Although with it being a trail bike most of the parts on it are on the AM/trail spectrum and made to take serious abuse. I've got a dropper seatpost on the way for it too.. so excited about that one.

    Are there any if the old school Titus riders still hanging out in this thread? I'm still riding my old Racer X 29er, and it's still one of the best handling FS 29ers around.

    Some damn fine machines posted here. Just got a dropper post and I've been loving it. It becomes so second nature when you get used to it, I seriously use the thing 20+ times a ride.

    Me sending it on my 09 Titus motolite at the bike park, the rock on the left is the lip. Terrible screen cap, but you get the idea.



    So far I've ridden this bike in many different conditions, has yet to fail me.
