    Eg tr26

    Hey all,
    So I'm curious about this new rig and assume that if I am at least a few others might be as well. Why not gather info we know here before this thing comes out?

    Let's see what we know...

    Ok Good to know!
    Additionally there is a thru axle system. Potentially 142x12?

    I like what I can see from the pic. Would be an extra nice touch if the rocker bearings can incorporate those bling ano bearing caps like the HL portion now.

    TR26 is an evolved El Guapo model. One of the great things about Titus is that we have a bullet proof bearing and pivot system, excellent thermal-formed tubing. It's proven, solid and works great.

    I've always had a passion for 'mismatched' suspension systems, as the area where I ride consists either of stupid steep uphills, or steep technical downhills. Longer travel bikes, even with the funky clever shocks really don't climb as well as everyone claims they do, and I personally hate lockout buttons and levers as invariably I forget to switch the things off when I get to the top, then wonder why the ride down was so bad.

    130mm rear isn't really "short" travel, but it's a nod shorter than some out there, and mated to a 160mm fork - well... 30mm isn't a big difference, but it's not the norm. But I come from riding long travel hardtails 5 or 6in forks and a nice 2.5in rear tyre... Anyhow. I love Lyrik's - they are just so solid.

    A steep seat angle puts you in a powerful pedalling position, the long top tube means a short stem is used to keep things fast up front, but stable because of the wheelbase. The CCDB is the most amazing rear shock I've ever used and can be set up to be the most wonderful unit giving traction I've not experienced on anything else but supportive and controlled through the stroke.

    Slack head angle keeps things fun up front, and for me, it never feels lacking. I like to think of it as a super tough trail bike. I can imagine (and I can only imagine) that on big jumps and drops it might get out of its depth a little, but I truly believe that a well tuned CCDB takes the hits as well as a longer suspension travelled inferior system. The rocker has two positions on the frame, which offer identical ride geometry but different rates of progression.

    I'm loving the ride. There is a bit of a revision to do to take it to production - it doesn't actually need a curved seat tube either, and though I love the look, I'd rather keep a simple clamp on FD position to make things easier and a straight tube for people with "non dropper" posts.

    That OK for you?

    Revise it to have replaceable dropouts to make it 650B compatible.
    P.S. Cause I know you want to hear that Brant

    This is awesome!
    Great to hear. Additionally I hear there is one in Oregon. Might need to make a trip up to see it.

    I like the way you think Brant. This sounds very similar to the types of riding I do. I really love my EG and am always finding new places it shines. But I agree on lots of trail rides it is a bit much. Something with just a bit more snap (shorter travel like this rig) would be super fun to ride. Others have called this style of bike, the DHer's trail bike

    Who knows what to call it, it's just fun! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it.

    I am riding it with a 160mm Lyrik and big tyres. I have been thinking I would like the BB to be a little lower. I have resisted changing the BB height ;-)

    Will it work with 150mm forks, and do you have a timeline on getting it to production?

    Yes to 150's. I've actually designed it around 150 Rev's though I'm running a 160mm Pike on it right now. I will do some testing with 150mm Revs too, to make sure.

    Re: Eg tr26

    Sounds good, I've been riding a distortion with a 36 talas fork and its been awesome. I don't even drop the fork for climbs, you don't really need tons of travel in the rear.

    Looks fun. Pretty slack HA. In-seam challenged like me would probably hope a degree or more steeper on the ST

    I've been trying to squeeze info out of On One for an estimated time frame for availability of these TR26s. My first email returned a response stating that they're in production but they had no date for release as yet. I then tried Brant through twitter as all I was after was a rough estimate (current mmmbop is dying so want to know whether to hold on or not). He seemed very secretive and though he replied, he didn't give any info on the frames.
    So I tried On One again explaining that all I am after is rough time frames and I got some slightly confused responses from them stating there are no plans for a 'Titus tr 26er'...??

    I just wanted to share that for the good of anyone else desperately waiting for info on these, sadly it's not very useful!
    Might have to cough up for a Mega TR. You know as soon as I do they'll release the TR26 for 400 bones less!!

    Not correct, but I don't blame our customer service team for not knowing the ins and outs of my dealings with factories.

    How about releasing the now over 6 months late El Guapo 29er before trying to take on other projects.

    Brant, what I am seeing become obsolete is a true 140mm trail/am bike. This more travel = better isn't what I agree with. I'd love to see this bike designed around a 140 or 150mm fork with a slightly taller BB, maybe 13.5". Once RS releases the Pike in a 140mm version for 26 inch wheels, I'll be shopping for a frame.

    What's the need for a 160mm Lyrik on a 130 or 140mm frame? Think this may be possible?

    I've just decided I am going to ride my On One 456C and EG until they break or the TR26 comes out If it doesn't end up happening I'll get a lighter shock and fork for the EG. 10mm travel difference isn't that big of a deal!

    Anyone heard any more on the tr26? I am still eagerly awaiting its arrival.

    I was told by titus via twitter 'a few more tweaks' just a couple of weeks ago but they're being tight-lipped and I haven't been able to find out any more from either them or On One or Brant.

    Boone were you able to ride one?
