    ML frame size question

    I posted eailer about ML vs Epi. Well I made the wise choice and stuck with my home town boy's at Titus and will be ordering a ML. I currently ride a L 2006 Racer X with with a 120 stem and a Thompson set back seat post which fits me perfect. Since I can't find a demo to ride I wanted to get some feed back from the experts who have ridden a ML and the Racer X to see if you had to make any size ajustmetns on your stem or seat postion (set back or straight post). I know the top tube and wheel base are longer on the ML. Has anyone had a better fit on a (M) Moto Lite after riding a (L) Racer X?

    The only thing remotly related to your Q that I can say is, when I ordered my ML I orded it based on a Md RX that, that LBS let me ride around the parking lot. It fit, so I ordered a Md Moto-Lite, and it fits great.... Good Luck!

    I don't know if you have an LBS that carries Titus. Competitive Cyclist in Arkansas has demo Motolites in M and L. You get 1 week of use and to/from shipping for 200 bones. Works like and charm.

    Thanks for the help blackagness. Did you have to shorten you stem or make any other adjustments

    I just picked up a large Motolite last week and own a 2003 large Racer-x. I had a 120mm stem on the Racer-X and have a 100 mm stem on the Motolite and they feel pretty similar.

    I also live in N. Phoenix and work in Scottsdale and would let you check it out and see how it fits.

    ML size question

    Jomax:

    Did you send a messege to my email? If so I did not receive it. It may have gone into my junk mail. You can try again at jeadamsaz@msn.com I gone this weekend for a bachelor party (that could be scary) but I will be around next week. I would love to try out the ML for a short ride,

    Thanks
