    Check to see which shock they come with. I think the 1 comes with RP2 and the 2 comes with the RP23. Big difference in the shocks.

    you can get the rp23 on either the I or II...other than that, just a weight difference?

    Available colors is also a difference if that matters to you.

    That silver ano on the ML II is top notch. I think that copper color
    is the only choice for the ML I.

    You probably knew this.

    The green is actually not powder or ano but actually painted.

    That being said, even though I promised myself I'd never buy a painted frame again because it looks sh!te after a couple months, i would go green over any anodised colour if I had to get another ML now.

    As ferretboy said, you really have to see it to really appreciate it. I truly have never seen such an awesome looking paintjob on a bike. The finish is outstanding. It really is beautiful.

    By the way....is the ML2 a stretch financially? Just asking cos if you can afford it then this really is a silly question

    Cheers

    Correct you are on the frame being painted Mintsauce and I should know that being dealer and all.lol..The ML2 frame retails for $1795.00 (carbon rear) and the ML2 complete bike (bronze color-sram) retails for $2495.00. Hey that's why we work..to spend!

    Glad you've decided to become a part of the forum. If you are a dealer it is common practice (rule?) to state that you are a dealer, either in your signature or your profile.

    It lets people out there question your motives and call you a liar when you say something positive about the brands you sell...

    Plus, it gives people another source for Titus stuff.

    LOL thanks geolover, I'll do that..attention everyone...attention everyone..yes you in the back sit down and listen. I am a Bicycle Dealer! I didn't state it originally because I was just chiming in. I try to stay objective with my posts so as to not come across all biased and stuff. I usually lurk more just to see what the buzz is and see what people are feeling. But yes, I can be a source for Titus stuff, although I would first direct you to someone in your neck of the woods and only if they cannot get one, then I would be glad to help you guys and gals out. Plus by letting people know that I was a dealer I felt some might be thinking that I was using this forum to sell stuff over the intarweb and that's not my first objective here.

    Although the gang have some pretty good ideas there, I feel you should be a tad bit more original

    I'm thinking GREEN ML2 WITH GREEN KING HUBS AND HEADSET AND EVRYTHING ELSE BLACK LIKE AVID JUICY CARBON, THOMSON, XTR CRANKS, X.O DRIVETRAIN ETC, ETC........(ferretboy....can I borrow your mind-control ray, pretty-please? )

    One of my guys just picked up a green ML2. we're thinking RASTA!! red king isodisc hub rear with black spokes on black DT 4.1D green and gold nipples and for the front a gold king isodisc hub black spokes and red and green nipples. King dreadset, rasta skewers, Rasta seat quick releases. how's that for a lot of work and a fruitbowl of colors?
