    ML-1 frames on sale at coloradocyclist.com

    I ordered a Titus ML-1 frame at colorado cyclist for $799.99. Can't wait to have it replace my Switchblade. Looks like they have a bunch more. They're in their closeout section.

    Man, that is a great deal - and pair it with their $399 special on the talas and you are really ready to go. If only it was next year.

    The Rock Shox Revelation fork I have on it is 100-130mm travel. I like the fork but might eventually upgrade to a 140mm travel.

    What is the diameter for the seatpost clamp? I'm building up one of these myself.

    Great deal...might need to look into that. Outside of the carbon fiber seat stay, any other differences b/w the ML1 and the newer Motolites?

    31.8mm... 32mm Salsa's work ok too... Actually, Titus' are (were?) shipped with clamps of the same company that makes Salsa's AKG (or was it AGK, whatever... they're the same clamps as Salsas without the fancy lettering and any colour as long as its black)

    The differences that I have found is that the ML1 frame is made from 6061 aluminum alloy where as the Motolite 2 is made from 6069. All the tubes on the ML1 are shaped the same as the ML2. From what I have read 6069 is a bit stronger and stiffer but has the same corrosion resistance of 6061 but is a tiny bit heavier. I think that is why Titus put the carbon rear end on the Motolite 2. I myself don't really care for any carbon on my trail bike frame because of the fragility from a crash and banging it around. Can be expensive to repair or replace. As far as where the ML1 frame is made, I have no idea. There is no stickers or anything on the frame that says where it is made.
