    Still no El Guapo reviews/ride reports???!! Where's the buzz?

    What's up with that? Haven't they sold any yet? Or is it just a dog and the titus faithful are afraid to say it.

    I can't believe no one here has one or has some significant time on one. I know they've been slow coming out, but I think December is the last delivery date I heard for the first run.

    Don't leave us hanging. If you got one, let's hear about it.

    crazy light. lateraly stiff. black. nice head badge. as with all titus bikes, it needs a 100mm fork to climb, great traction, but it will cost you front wheel lift, so bring on your tallas or U-turn. pedaling wise.... its a little more supermoto then motolight. Geometry wise its a litle more motolite then supermoto.

    I think it is the perfect bike for blacky. a very nice all mountain, 6 inch trail bike. I perfect upgrade for a motolite guy looking to go bigger. and wont turn you into a slug.

    Hey demo, how much time do you have on the EG?....or just relaying info from interbike etc? Is the front end that much taller than a 6.6? I have no problems climbing with my 6.6 and a 160mm Van36.

    I think reading here that they were having issues with their first batch of frames that weren't coming in at the desired weight (i.e. too heavy). I could be completely wrong though. The one thing that is sure though is that Titus is a little late bringing the frame to market. Then again, it's always like that when releasing a new frame.

    I've seen a 07 Specialized Enduro SL at Demo yesterday. Does it count?

    I went to ride in Phoenix this weekend and my buddy who owns a Titus Dealership here tried to get me a Demo direct from Titus. They said all available bikes are with the rags at this point and nothing is available for Demo. That tells me they don't have many put together and you can read into that what you will. It also tells me Richie and the gang should have a review soon. They seem to be the first ones who get their hands on these things.

    Nope. Unless I sold the SuMo, but then I'd have to buy a dedicated Whistler bike. Hmmm, I really do like the looks of the Cove Shocker...or the Knolly V-Tach.

    I don't think I could bear to sell the SuMo. It's such a sweet bike.

    its all about being greedy. why have 1 bike when you can have 5?

    this would be my collection, if I had my way.

    2. ML
    3. Buckfifty or 6.6
    4. SuMo FR
    5. canfield Bro. formula 1 or M1

    titus said they would sell El Guapo with a DHX air option for extra $$$.
    actually, I'd buy with the pearl,and I'll get a coil to swap in....either a roco or a revox.

    Hey!!!! Newsflash. This just in!

    "Aggressively shaped tubes and ultra-lightweight machined parts combine to form a nimble 6Ē all-mountain trail bike, thatís as much fun going up as it is going down.

    Forged and machined swingarm yolks give the new rear end world class stiffness for solid go-anywhere performance.

    Sophisticated aluminum rocker is built for zero-flex and ultra plush, big bump performance."

    Not only that, but.....

    "From the precision machined bottom bracket and sophisticated rocker, the El Guapo is crafted with a plethora of details to excite the senses. The rider is the focus, with handling and suspension so focused, it almost seems to know what you want...... even before you do."

    Now we're talking. I love those in-depth objective evaluations.

    I'll be in Mesa at the end of February. Maybe they'll have some demos to try by then.

    It is a gorgeous bike, no doubt, but I want a re-do demo without the Pearl. In the mean time I got my hands on an MC 3.3 and it is without a doubt the single worst shock I have ever put on a bike. It is soooooo horrible it's not even funny. I would strongly encourage potential Guapo owners to opt for a Fox shock and let other people be the RS guinea pigs. An RP3 on the Guapo would likely be sweet. I loved the Switchblade and SuperMotos we demoed in 05 and felt a little cheated by the shocks that were on the EG.

    While you are waiting...

    I'm still thinkin' that the EG is more bike than I'll ever need. However, it is a really sweet lookin ride. I'm surprised at the choice of wheels on the demo bike. Seems like they'd choose something with a little more meat on the bones. X455s are what came on my budget build ML. I figured they leaned a lot more towards XC than AM.....


    cheers,

    Who knows what those holes are for at the top of the brace where the aluminum linkage connects to the downtube. It looks as there are different mounting holes for the linkage...any guesses? (You can see them in the second and third pics from the bottom of Tscheezys post)

    El Guapo shipping notice

    As soon as I get the UPS notification from Titus (3 EG's, 3 36 Talas RC2's) I'll post it here.
    I think we'll have the bikes before the reviews go to print.
    Nice pics, Cheezy.

    Simp, here's a word of advice.....Don't jump on board the exogrid bandwagon....(even though it is a fine wagon indeed )....and get another tool for the toolkit, ie the EG (add er to the stable big boy)........with the money saved not upgrading to Exonirvana, you can start building another ride..........Then maybe they'll have another firesale in the fall you could pick up a Eleve 29'er on the cheap as well.......Heal up buddy, you got some spending and riding to do soon

    I wore a Ventana jersey on one of the Utah Homer Convention rides. I'm a nondenominational dresser. And Titus does put out some damn nice looking duds...

    Hmmm... I was expecting argyle. Never mind.

    El Guapo news! This just arrived

    Just got this today. What to wear while you wait for the legendary El Guapo to show up.

    Also, Fox is working on custom valving a DHX Coil for Titus. Meanwhile, the Pearl was the first choice of the designers. Once Fox heard that, they decided to come up with something tuned for this particular frame.
    Frames are very close to production-ready or actually in production. Lots of machining and manipulation to the tubes, inside and out, to get it well under 7 pounds.
    I hope to be riding one soon enough.

    I could see it...my Foes FXR is an 8 1/2lb frame and it weighs about 34lbs built. Take 1 1/2lb off that and you're close. The Foes has a Zoch Z1 Light so it has the coil as well. If you went Fox 36 you'd definitely be around 31lbs. Sounds sweet!!!

    I was a little worried about the EG, but this bike is looking better and better! In this months issue of MBA Jeff Titone is quoted as saying "the new pivot location and travel path enable the EG to really shine on the high speed big hit stuff" and at only 6.8lb's. That's absolutly unreal to me!

    With that stiff "Titus" rear end and Horst link I might be in love, but I don't know if I can afford to be buying a new bike every two yrs.

That's absolutly unreal to me!

    With that stiff "Titus" rear end and Horst link I might be in love, but I don't know if I can afford to be buying a new bike every two yrs.
    Hey Blackagness, which issue was this in? Feb 2007? If so, where?

    I think it's in the blurb where they ask a person from each manufacturer which bike from their offering do they like best. Actually, it was funny as everybody was giving a nice marketing (or at least sounded like it) answer. The only answer that was ringing true (to me) was Dave Turner's. Now, that being said, the EG seems like a killer bike.
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    Come on Titus dealers, let us in on when these will hit the stores. January came and went. I'm starting to think about just replacing my ID with a Moment because I can get one now, I've ridden one, and I know I like it. I wanted to compare it with a El Guapo before deciding, but I'm getting a little impatient.

    El Guapo cometh

    The word today from the mother ship is that one run of El Guapos willship sometime in March. Had to go back to production to shave more weight from the tubeset.
    I ordered a few way back when, and am very interested in seeing them on my doorstep, too.
    So hibernate for a few more weeks, and when you wake up, try to meet El Guapo in person.
    Nomads are so last year.

    What's sort of funny is that when I was searching for a bike, and decided to go to a Moto Lite, the waiting time for the frames was measured in months. Now people want to know right now how a new bike will ride....

    I really don't know about El Guapo, it sounds pretty cool, but let's wait and see....

    Warp, you're not allowed to even look at buying one until you sink the Black Pearl buddy.....

    And no I'm not ordering one......not in the budget for this year, unless I dispose of a couple of bikes this year for 1 new one............

    I've said it to tiredness... 6" is too much a bike for me.

    If I see at a new frame it's got to be 5" travel...

    Ti, just remember deadline is March 31st and some El Guapos may be delivered before that.

    Maybe if you connect A with B...
