    White fork is about as crazy as I get. I really like the matte finish with polished graphics and the seat-stays are super stout. The head-tube is like a Ti pint glass.

    Photo shoot

    Needs red accents for the ad photos, GB.

    Or mango Manitou and green Michelins for that 90's retro look.

    Love the Zebra...

    ....Chairs.

    Would you mind taking a photo of the FTM on the couch? Sexy!

    And put a Terry Zebra saddle on for me. Please?

    Seriously-need a high quality photo of you, the FTM, and beautiful trail soon.

    Sticker suggestion

    That bike deserves a big YOUR BIKE SUCKS sticker on the downtube.

    You need some Febreze. It gets rid of the Courvoisier, chain lube, and s****n smell.

    wont be able to do the 13th, I'm at Citrix Synergy in the city all week

    we're riding GAP at 8:30am Sat if you want?

    or CM08 on Sun at 11:00am - but might be missing that - that pace is social and not sure I can be away for 4 hours on Sun.

    hope you have some great rides on the new bike though, should be smoooooth!!

    Make sure to give a ride report. You may be the only man alive who has owned a ti ML, a Ti FTM and a Ti 2010 FTM!

    Does it happen to you?

    Do you have your Stan's rims sealed tubeless? If you do, do you get sealant leaking out of the nipple holes occasionally? I was so careful taping my Flows with the yellow tape and even ran tubes for three rides to make sure the tape was set and I get little drips of sealant dripping out once in a while.

    I am still running tubes. Just lazy I guess, but tubeless seems like a headache to me.

    You guys need to get with the program, going tubeless is easy and the benefit is noticeable.

    Just busting your chops a bit, it really is pretty easy.

    great weather, great ride!

    Great ride with Orthorex today!

    Got to see the FTM Ti in person and wow...it's just stunning

    the quality was top-notch and the finish is really sweet. Love how it goes from polished to brushed - really unique and makes the bike pop.

    Orthorex let me take the FTM Ti for a spin around the lot and briefly on the trail on a fire road climb. First impression I got it how stiff the BB and rear stays are...it was instant power transfer. The suspension was really good with very little bobbing - exactly what we've come to expect from Titus. Didn't get a chance to see how plush the travel was but riding behind Orthorex it seemed good - hard to judge on that trail, it's just normal singletrack and nothing too crazy.

    No video and only snapped 1 pic...we were focused on riding even though it was a "recovery" ride Orthorex made me hurt....ugh...I need to strap some 10lbs weights to his shoes to even make it fair haha

    Yep, had a chance for a proper shake down ride with Bap today. He's a monster on a steel 29er. Don't let him fool you, he's ridden tons the last few days and stilled mashed a single speed. The new FTM is really good. RP23BV has lighter PP than the '09 but a big improvement across the board. I haven't measured the BB height, but the ride feels significantly lower than the '09. I agree, the rear stays are super stiff. I think I am going to keep it.

    NoCal mountains, final pic of build, and a couple shots of tire clearance with a Conti Mountain King 2.4.

    Bloody hell, that is beautiful. How does the 2010 un-pushed shock compare with the older pushed shock?

    I need a bit more time to play with the settings, but so far, on this bike, it's pretty close.

    That why I used real UST rims and tires, so I don't have to put the Stan Kool Aid in my tires.
