    Yup.... well it sits on top of the machined out groove of the dropout (doesn't sit in it). So that probably causes it to be slightly angled, which I think might cause the wheel to tend toward being offcenter. What do you think? I was playing around with chain lengths the other day to try to avoid it, but as you say it just ain't gonna work. I think you have the solution to it. Fortunately, we have a machine shop at work so should be no problem to customize the tuggnut.

    Holy crap, she is! She arrived Friday and I rode Saturday for the first time. I just about creamed my pants! I can't believe how quickly you can navigate tight singletrack on this thing. Worth every penny.

    I also purchased a Titus Modena road bike last year. It has a great ride, I little bit firmer, but no more harsh than my old Trek OCLV...and A LOT more responsive when sprinting. On sale now at Colorado Cylcist.

    hi can you tell me some more about the fit of this frame, I'm considering getting one of these bikes myself (whenever they come out in April) and I was recently talking to someone at Competitive Cyclist who recommended that I go with a Large instead of an XL. It looks like we have similar height/proportions, I'm 6'2 with about a 35 inseam, I can fit a large on some frames.

    Have you owned a 26 RX? and what size did yo ride? Thanks

    FWIW I'm 6' with a 33" inseam. I ride a large '06 ML with a '07 TALAS fork. It feels real nice, maybe just a bit taller than what I was used to (without feeling tipping). Stand over is also closer than what I'm used to (without being dangerous). I had to shorten the stem. The one that came on it was a 140mm. I put on a 110 and it feels much nicer.

    I ordered a large based both on LBS and Titus recommendation. While I have no regrets with a large, I always wonder what a medium might feel like. The medium that I rode had a very short stem on it and felt much too compact at the time. I think some tweaking could have brought a medium into my size range, no doubt. It also would have let me run a longer fork as many around here are. If I tried that with my large it'd be a bad scene for the boys down below. Fortunately for me there's not much around where I ride (and how i ride) that warrants a longer fork.


    cheers,
    simp

    It inside the rockes running on top of the bridge that support them. I cut my derailleur able so that it sit on top of the bridge and zip-tight it to the brake cable at about were the seatpost support meats the top tube, and I have no problems with shifting plus it looks clean.

    Thanks, I might do the zip-tight thing first before making other changes.
