    Racer x Frames Question

    Just out of curiosity

    Do different size racer x have different frame designs? specifically 2006-2009 frames
    It seems like the large has the extra tube connecting the top tube to the seat tube. Were medium frames made with the extra tubing? What is the reason for this?

    Yes. The large and bigger frames had/have (includes the X) a seat tube brace.

    The top tube needs to be in about the same position for the shock mount. The bigger frames need the brace to support the longer seat tube extension.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    seems like the large has a long seatpost for the TT length.
    maybe thats standard, i don't know

    In general, Titus frames have long seat tubes relative to the ETT. That has not changed over the years while many frames have gone to shorter STs which may require a longer seat post.

    Shiggy - do we know if brant is going to bring the Racer X 29 back around? Current thoughts on my next build (full suspension) are for either Rockstar 29, Racer X 29 (if I can find a good used frame or if a new one comes out), or FELT Edict Nine. Would rather support the brand love with a full quiver of Titus/On-One/Planet-X.
