    MB Magazine... Cocalis Article.

    I just picked up this months issue of MBMagazine "not a favorite" but I had to get it cause it had a pic of the new Titus trail bike. Opened it up to find a small article about CC.

    I didn't know he was a pro BMX racer. It also talks about the name Titus, turns out it is a reference to the whole Greek myth thing, and also how it kinda goes along with titanium. And also something to do with it standing for integrity and high quality.

    He also say's if theres a susp philosophy that permiates our entire line, it's tracking and frame stiffness. Hardtail or FS.... Kinda makes you want to shed a tear.

    It's also got some info on the (EL Guap) referring to it as the Buck 60. say's aside from the linkages and the geomatry, the over all look and tub shapes will change for the production models coming out in late Oct... Just thought I'd share.

    For El Guapo (btw, I don't like the name, not that it really matters), I hope that Titus makes the top tube slope more (a la Motolite) to help the shorter riders. At the end of the day, I still cherish my nutsac more than any given bike (even a Titus).
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    Yeah I'm not crazy about the TT either. I've never had a problem with stand over, but I like a more sloping TT. As for the name I like em both. (El Guapo) just say it a few times, it's fun!

    Oh man, you guys are KILLING me!

    You know I'd be lying if I said I'm not interested...

    I gotta wait and see though, many unkowns, plus my wife would kill me. For now I love my moto-lite- maybe in the fall I'll re-consider when there's more info.

    good to meet you on the trail, next time we'll hit the south loop. Drop me a line next time you come to GA.
