    Livewire Classic

    Raced the Livewire Classic yesterday, placed third in 40-49 Cat 2. Here is a video ( I know the camera angle could be a little higher). Unfortunately it was not on a Titus. If Brant would design a 180mm FR bike or a DH sled, I would be on it.

    I'm guessing he used his Knolly Delirium. I've been up to N* just one time and I rallied that trail 2/3 of the day and man is that an aerobic and anaerobic beast. Nice result, Craig!

    Yep...my trusty Delirium

    DeerhillJ.. that Suntour fork was just something I saw on the Eurobike coverage that looked new to me. Here is a pic of the D after practice. I just had the Totem worked on (new lowers) and some internal mods and that was the first time I rode it, you can see by the o-ring that the new mods were keeping me from getting full travel. I always complained that the totem was very linear, even with the firm spring, it ramps up nicely now but I got worked over only using 5" of suspension yesterday. I was going to bring softer springs but I forgot them. Wasea...yep its anaerobic the whole way down, you are actually pedaling about 70% of the time.

    Congrats Craig! I would have to agree with your earlier comment; Brant, it is time for a 180mm (hey maybe more) Titus frame! I would imagine Wasea would also be interested.

    I go insane without regular interesting breaks. Besides, I have long to go before I earn my minor in cycling like you...

    170-180mm??

    If el Guapo continues to evolve into a lighter rig, at the least we need beefed up 160mm travel 27.5 bike
