    It's been on the Thursday night ride a couple of times and to Lee Quarry too. Three days in France, and Ed rides his most of the time. You're just in the wrong places :-)

    Hmmm I'm gonna eat my own words aboutt 29ers.. but with the kind of changes in my local trails, switching out to one might not be such a bad idea afterall... and the looks of this big EG kinda grows on me by now...

    can it be.. Titus has updated their page!


    So from the 2010 EG large, would the MK3 ride give a little more reach, 5mm more travel and extra paint colors? I'm liking how a low 60mm stem vs 70mm handles the 160mm fork, little more top tube on MK3 sounds good

    Can't wait to see how the new looks

    Guys,

    I updated the site with the new geometries and whatnot direct from Brant's mouth. The picture is currently the MK1, but will be updating it soon to the new colors once we get them in and built up. Orange, black, white, and raw.

    Personally, I can't wait to get a sexy black one built up, although I do have a soft spot in my heart for the raw frames.

    Side note: I've ridden the elusive EG29er and it's going to be such a fun bike that I didn't want to give it back to Brant.

    What angle headset for the MK2/MK3 if I want to slackened it out and run a standard steer tube fork? Works has multiple sets that look like they might fit. It does look like only the 1 deg sets work though... Can someone point me in the right direction?

    If you have a straight (1 1/8") fork get the On One Slackset. Its made by Works.

    Nice pedalwrench, good to see geo for the MK3

    The 2010 el Guapo chart was incorrect for years and causes confusion. Can you post accurate geometry chart for 2010 el Guapo large using the same method of measuring MK3?

    Old Titus had completely different way of measuring travel and geometry than On One, so those of us who own the 2010 EG know the wonderful handling and suspension feel on this bike, but we have no reference to compare to the MK3, or to make an informed purchas on the future EG29. I had to actually convince a couple interested friends that the 2010 numbers were a bit off


    PS still want to see photos of the new large!
