    Bear + Quasi = Fun

    An obvious equation, perhaps. Bear posted fairly recently about his new front shock. Thought it might be fun to see him in action on it.

    I was a little too slow to catch his front wheel in the air, but it's still a pretty cool shot.

    Have I mentioned recently how much I love my bike?

    It's almost un-nat-ur-al.

    The recent mods have just "brought out the true nature" of the machine, to be sure.

    Got one last mod to make, hopefully partz will arrive this week.

    Thanks Scorpionwoman, for documenting my silliness.

    I think it had more than an inch more to go. It's a 66SL1.

    I ought to see if I could dig up a pic from the top of that rootiness, what you can't see in that pick is the second half of the rooty section, and the "landing zone". The LZ is a dirt ledge about 1.2 bike-lengths in size, with a 12-18" drop into the creek bed.

    Right now, the creek has a max of about 24" of water depth going.

    I wonder what will happen to big bear when he has DOUBLE ZOKE STOKE ?~?

    I would have liked to ride a Quasi.

    Hopefully I'll find out by next weekend.

    From what I gather AM, yeah, you would have liked the Quasi. IMO truly a bike ahead of it's time. The geometry of the bike is surprising - by the book the head- and seat-tube-angles are steeper than the ML-2 130 ... in fact the HA is marginally steeper than the ML-2 100 and the SA is identical.

    Of course, this means naught w/o really measuing the angles with the bike setup to ride, but you get the idea. All that and 6" travel.

    Maybe you should car-pool down with glenxz and s.n.a.k.e sometime to central texas and find out? (or just find one somewhere near you, there's got to be some out there)

    btw, if you can't find an old copy of the quasi manual you can get a PDF version over here

    When I got my first one, in the late 90s, I knew they had figured out some things the rest of the industry had not. It's the best bike Titus ever designed and produced. When they decided to shelve the Quasi, they began their steady decline to the 'also ran' status of today.
