    More Ti El Guapo's??

    Can I see more Ti EG's here? I've only seen one in the Titus Porn thread, aren't there anymore? I'm trying to decide if I should get one or opt for the 2010 EG or maybe even the new Knolly DT!

    Titus will not make the Ti EG anymore unfortunately.

    Low demand, too complicated manufacturing and the price that comes with it.

    If I recall, there are only 5 or so active MTBR posters that have the elusive handsome one, as said by Warp and a few others in other threads, the Ti EG is not available for 2010.

    More pics from the other owners please. The Ti EG was really not one of my options untill a friend offered to sell his at a fairly good price.

    Tiendo, how do you find yours? Are you happy with it?

    Btw, is the Ti EG made in the US or Taiwan, I believe the alum EG is taiwan made right?

    If you can get a Ti EG at what seems like a good price to you, jump on it. What a great bike.

    All Ti bikes from Titus are made in the USA.

    I have been very happy with it, it climbs as well as my motolite (actually the front end stays more planted and wanders less) and it is very stable and balanced bike. In all honesty, it probably is more comparable to the 5spot and Endorphin then what it is marketed as......it can easily be built into a do all bike. There was some mention amongst an owner that they could feel flex, but I think this has more to do with the tubeset and complexities of the weld plates. My medium was definately 7+ (closer to 7.5 if I recall) pounds versus some of the others here that were dead on seven or sub seven, so each frame may have a bit of variance.

    If you can get one at a good price, buy it.....it is a rare beast and I really don't think Titus will be making another run of them for a long time or at all.

    I actually already pulled the trigger on the Ti EG! Thanks guys!!

    I'm already coming off the Endorphin which is really a great bike, gave me the confidence to get more aggressive. Which is why I'm looking for more travel hence my frame options. All the while, I thought the EG had 160mm of travel, just found out that it only had 155mm. This was one of my criterias, travel should at least be 160mm because I want to progress. But there's no turning back now, I'm sure it'll be one nice ride.

    I'll port pics when i have it built!

    Bro! Don't get hung up on 5mm of travel making much of a difference. It's quality of travel that matters, but that's a side note, once you're in the 6-7 inch range you hardly notice a difference. I have a 9.5 inch DH bike and my EG, and here's the big difference between the two as far as suspension performance goes: The big bike is smoother in the rocks......that's it. The EG is perfect for two reasons: Strength, they didn't over lighten the frame, and handling, the EG is very responsive and stiff in the corners and plush but not so plush it doesn't jump well or wallow on a big hit. Trust me, this is the best bike out there hands down, and with a Ti model you'll be set for pretty much ever

    I'm pretty sure 5mm won't matter at all but it's just my present minimum.

    By the way, can anyone confirm what the real travel is on the EG's specially the Ti version. I'm getting confusing info on the web, even on Titus' site.
