    Titus El Guapo Frame with Cane Creek Double Barrel Air Shock -$1100

    EG V3 w/ CC DB air - $1100

    EG V3 with Monarch RT3 - $825


    Saw this at On-one.uk, and they are also offering the w/ Monarch RT3 at $825. Why the very big price difference , especially they dont have any kind of pedal asist lever of some sort? Is the CC DB worth the difference in price? Will the Monarch Plus RC3 be a better option?

    If you are a discerning suspension nerd that cannot be happy with a few simple adjustments and would like the ability to endlessly dial in your shock, the RP3 is the way to go.

    If you've been riding a few years and can tell the difference between forks, tires feel at different pressures, etc...get the CCDB-Air.

    Let's just say that FOX suspension is incredibly popular, as it is cheap and reliable and it gets spec'd on almost every bike. It isn't the best product, just the one that is most commonly spec'd.

    At $1100 for a good frame and a great shock, you'd be silly not to IMO

    Crap, those prices are low. The regular EG is only $825.

    Has anyone in the USA purchased a frame or bike from UK? If so, what are the additional cost of doing so? i.e. import tax, etc.? What are things to look out for? Any warranty issues? Etc. Thanks.

    There is a big price difference because CCDB shocks are pricey. Look them up, like $600 or so. Issues can arise with any company. What matters is that you are well taken care of when the issues do.arise. On-one, Brant namely, Titus and the gang are all trying hard to bring customer service back to Titus which wasn't stellar their last few years of business before the acquisition.

    I just got a frame from their UK warehouse and it landed about 1.5 weeks after purchase. I hqve not received any import fees yet so hopefully there will be none.

    mnigro, have you encountered any charges yet? I was about to order one with the CCDB and was curious how yours turned out. Also, was the head tube reaming fix implemented on yours?

    I have not seen any customs fees yet, kow. Ive ordered 2 frames and 2 wheelsets from the UK and never got dinged.

    The HT was not reamed on my frame but it is a 2012, you are looking at the 2013 version. I would have preferred the 2013, especially at the same price. Stop stalling and buy it.
