    Sweet! Can't tell from pix. Is it carbon?
    Are the Titus folks there at SeaOtter providing targeted frame weight? My medium '08 is right at 6.25lbs. Curious if the new ones will be close to the same or under the old models.

    So these frames must have been in development before On-One bought Titus? I dont think they could have ramped up design and production that quickly. Kudos to them bringing them out.

    Yes, this is carbon. The frame was pretty much ready before On-One acquired Titus.
    It is a preproduction sample that needs to be thras...err test ridden.

    Ben weighed the frame straight out of the box, all hardware, no shock, no paint, at 4 pounds even. Expect about 5pounds with shock and paint.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Nice! When is anticipated first customer ship?

    Edit - One additional question. Seeing that endurance racers will be a portion of the target market will there be two water bottle mounts? I certainly miss the extra mount on my current RX29.

    Keep an unpainted option. It does look very special-ed, but I'm okay with that.

    Looks really good. But Nothing too revolutionary. Success will come down to price.

    where would thewey put them? hard to believe that they'd redesign the front triangle to fit an extra h2o boss. not busting your balls, just saying.

    Agreed tough call on location. Only option that I can see is underside of downtube down low like the Tallboy.
    As I stated before a large portion of the target market would be folks that do long XC endurance riding/racing. For me it's not a deal killer by any means, but I really do miss having the 2 cages on my '08 RX29. For 3 hr+ training rides it's nice to only have to do one h20 bottle in the jersey rather than 2. And I hate to use my Osprey pack unless I absolutely have to

    Water bottle mounting problem solved.

    I understand the decision to use the older style Titus head badge (since the company is no longer an AZ company), but it's a shame. The other one was a lot better-looking.

    Cool bike. I'd love to ride one!

    Sorry, totally disagree. I love the Old Skool Headbadge.... Thanks for bringing it back and not coming out with a totaly redesigned one!

    And yeah, you can always mount an extra cage behind the seat....

    Rear seat stays look much improved... hope they hold up!

    Uhmmm... no BB30 or PF30?

    Good going Shiggy and Co. Glad to see Titus making a splash!
