    My new motolite has finally arrived: I picked it up from the store about 4 hours ago and have been busy covering all the relevant bits in sticky carbon patches and clear edging tape.

    Well here it is:

    Think of it this way instead: all these forks are new reasons for you to go spend money on your bike.

    Cool ML. Welcome to the Titi legion.
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    Bike spec:

    Frame: Titus Motolite Medium w/Fox RP23
    Fork: Rock Shox Pike Team Coil U-Turn
    Wheels: Sun Singletrack rims on Hope Bulb Hubs
    Drivetrain: Full XT
    Brakes: Hope Mono M4
    Seat post: Thomson in-line
    Saddle: SDG Bel Air SL
    Stem: Easton Vice 80mm w/10deg rise
    Handlebars: Race Face Air Alloy

    Had the first ride today: The biggest surprise was that I never used the propedal on the rear shock. The bike performed flawlessly (well apart from the gears that the shop hadn't set up properly. All of the above parts, with the exception of the new bits required (seat post, cassette, chain, front mech, seat post clamp) were taken off my old Specialized Enduro and fitted and worked perfectly.

    I was amazed how plush suspension was compared to the rear end on my coil sprung 2004 Spesh Enduro.

    I think I may be very happy with this bike....hopefully.

    With the number of qualifiers in this sentence, if I had to guess I'd say you are a politician by trade! Here's my prediction for what you will be saying in a week or so:
    "This bike is the shiznit, no ifs, ands or buts!" Or something similar.
    Just pulling your leg, though. It is nerve-wracking when you drop so much cash, hoping that you made a good decision. Anyway, great looking build: congratulations & I HOPE you love it as much as I love mine!

    Apologies for sounding a bit reserved, but It was only my first ride and I am still smarting from handing over all that cash....lol

    Great handling bike, superbly plush suspension, climbs fantastically well, descends like a greased weasel and really seemed to soak up the many root gardens I ploughed through.
    One of the major plus points was the geometry: I was after a frame that had slacker geometry than my 2004 Enduro and the moto really came up trumps. The head tube angle really improved the ride on steep decents and I actually rode sections better than ever.

    Nothing bad to say about it (except that it's already got some small chips on it....grrrrrrr) so all in all....one hell of a bike.
