    Ruegamer Uberlight Titus Racer X

    Last week I built up this bike, using a Ruegamer carbon frame I bought on eBay. The frame was custom-built here in Arizona a year before the carbon Titus Racer X went into production.

    I'm about to replace the Rock Shox Monarch 2.1 shock with a 180-gram DT Swiss XR carbon shock, which will save some weight and provide a lockout. Then the bike will be done except for machining out an XTR M970 front derailleur clamp so it will go around the fat seat tube, although I usually prefer riding without a front derailleur so installing one is a low priority.













    This bike rides beautifully. I'm amazed at how comfortable it is and how well it climbs.

    There are lots of thorns here, so I always use Slime tubes, even though they weigh 320 grams apiece. With them installed, the bike as it's shown here weighs 21 1/2 pounds.

    Here's the bike with the new 180-gram DT Swiss XR-180 carbon shock I installed today. Dialing in the air pressure and adjusting the rebound was easy, and this shock has a lockout for sprinting and hard climbing that works perfectly.

    This bike rides so well it amazes me.

    The last upgrade for it that I'm working on is building a RockShox SID fork.

    For anyone interested, there's a thread about the bike in the Weight Weenies forum, titled Ruegamer Uberlight carbon Titus Racer X.

    Finally finished!!!

    Hey everyone, finally finished building my very first AM MTB. Been a long 6-month project, mostly dead time waiting for the damned fork (advice: do NOT pre-order a Marzocchi fork, get what's in stock. I ordered the 55 RC3 Evo Ti in July (no U.S. stock) and the US still didn't have any by February. Ridic!). I'm not gonna lie, she's beautiful as a virgin, not sure if I want to ride her . I also want to say that this would have never been possible without the support and guidance from this site; thanks to all that helped me out very much. I owe you all a beer. In case you notice, I'm a huge Pittsburgh Penguins fan, so I had some fun with part colors to show a little pride. Anyhow, here she is:
    EG Large (measuring 13.6" BBH)
    Marzocchi 66 RC3 Evo Ti 180mm
    CCDB Air
    XTR drivetrain and brakes w/ice rotors 203F/180R
    Xpedo pedals
    CK headset and BB
    Easton Havoc wheels/stem/seatpost
    Schwalbe Fat Alberts (tubeless rear)
    Token seatpost clamp
    ODI grips
    Loaded Precision straight bar
    Terry saddle (for now)

    Had a few upgrades, shot with the training wheels though, should've snapped it with the I9s. Time for a repost...

    Here's my El Guapo... NOT FINISHED YET. Waiting for a Durolux RC2. And I just got the 30.9 reverb today.

    Not really bling blingy but it's a great bike thus far. Still adjusting to the frame's suspension characteristics and the Monarch's feel though.

    BB's pretty low with a 150mm - it's at 12.5", hoping it gets to hit 13 point something inches when I have the Durolux on it. The big diff for me, aside from the suspension, is the weight. DANG it's light. Dropped a pound or two from my GT Force with the same components. And the geo is just great - EVEN if I still haven't felt the 67* of the HTA.

    Went from 2x9 to 1x9 and did a shake down run along with some suspension tuning. Here she is in her final form. I don't run a GoPro all the time.

    Thanks guys! I'm blushing lol it truly is a great bike, can do it all!
    Have a few ideas in mind, need to order some parts and fine-tune the set-up. I'll do a complete post in the EG Set-Up thread soon. My old set-up is in there with the white Marz 66.
    I'm also rebuilding an old MotoLite, finally got new pivot bearings so it's go-time to get that running!

    Beautiful ti frame. Are they pretty rare? I mainly see the aluminum and now carbon versions of the Rockstar.

    I bought it just as On One/Planet X took over and this was the 2nd last medium they had in stock. I'm not sure how many Ti frames were built up (maybe someone with a bit of inside knowledge could tell us), but I haven't seen any others around.
