    And thus it is

    I wanted to post one last time my goodbyes. As many of you saw the post from Dave at Planet X they have decided to move the operation to Portland. I have not accepted a position with them and will no longer be affiliated with Titus. As the only remaining Titus employee it is a decision that evokes mixed emotions. I am disappointed that I could not see the brand rise back to the top of the MTB world, but in the end it was time to mutually part ways. I wish them the best of luck and success in their endeavors.

    On the flip side I have a new opportunity that I am very excited about. I will be the sales and marketing manager for Grammo Bikes USA. You can contact me at ben@zedsport.com. I will still be around forum stalking using my other alter ego.

    Cheers

    Last of the Tempe Tribe. We'll miss you.

    As the only representative of the old Titus, you were doing a great job for the customers and few remaining dealers.
    Been rough to watch good people leave one by one in recent years.

    Wish Grammo were more into mtb. I'd sign up!

    Best wishes from me and my clients.

    And time to change my flag avatar to Tennessee.

    Good luck. You were a positive force for Titus and I wish you the best. On a side note, the turnover at Titus over the years is getting hard to keep track of.

    Now what

    Wish you hadn't left.
    OK, enough sentimentality. Life goes on.
    What do we do in the interim for frames, parts, help?
    Website is down and you are gone.
    Is there still a US contact for Titus?

    Wow!

    Ben, sorry to hear you are not going to be with Titus/On One! You have always been a huge help for the last 11 years that I have been on a Titus. I guess you will have to move back to AZ now. I hope OR is treating you well.

    Thanks for helping my purchase of my recent Titus Ben. It was a real pleasure. Good luck with your new position.

    Sorry to hear you're leaving Ben... you are one of the originals!

    So does this mean the 650b Exo & RX are on hold? I hope not!

    Just took a look see... they have a Carbon 29er (who doesn't these days), so maybe the start of some good stuff!

    Check it out here!
