    $999 for aluminum, carbon $1199, Ti $1499.
    If you need a rear shock, $223.
    Details on the site. Prices show up after you choose color and size.

    Shiggy,
    On the shopsite, in the spare parts, MotoLite is mentioned as Motorlite several times.
    You might want to correct that.

    2011 EG's???

    You might want to check some of the specs you have listed for the El Guapo. Unless these were new frames for sale in 2011 with some refinements, you have a couple of errors. You have it listed as 150mm travel and with a tapered headtube, the 2010 frames were 155mm travel with a straight 1.5" headtube. Interesting that you are going with the Monarch shock, I had trouble getting the most out of my Fox RP23. I have a Monarch on order in the "mid" tune, do you know what tune you were going to supply for the EG?

    Will get the corrections made.

    I do not know the specifics on the shock tune. Will find out.

    Fox RP23

    Any chance to upgrade to the original Fox RP23 with Boost Valve?
    Any OEM Fox front suspension to go with the frames?

    What is the warranty going to be on these, what type of spare parts may be available down the road? (say for instance on a rockstar Ti - are more rear ends being sourced if there is a problem at some point?

    Thanks.

    Fox shocks would bring a higher price for sure

    I've heard great things about the Fox RP23 on the X and FTM's, The frames were designed around the Fox offering and you cant beat the reliability of the Float air shocks, so simple to service as well.

    Hi,
    At first blush this appeared to be good news (the availability of spare parts), however the commentary on the site,

    we are clearing the old frames from an incredible $999 (+ $223 for a custom-tuned Rock Shox Monarch shock.)
    This should give you something to chew on whilst we line up some new bikes for later in the year
    ,

    Am I incorrect in reading this to mean current frames and parts are being cleared permanently, and this factory shop will not carry nor manufacturer any pre 2011 frame pieces or parts once this clearance process is complete?

    Thanks.

    same question I have..that is still a lot of Jack for say...a rockstar if the rears become obsolete

    Shiggy?

    The other question of course is ifnthat is the case will there be a generous trade in program available on the family of bikes?


    If not..those deals are not appealing. especially on the bikes with carbon rears.

    We really do not know yet. Still working with the old suppliers and talking with new suppliers.

    Time is required to evaluate what is and is not working with the current designs, and how to move forward.

    Sorry I can not be more specific. I just do not know.

    Buyer beware on 2010 FTM Carbon's. I know for fact that at full compression a proper 2.35" tire hits the rear seat tube. Titus didn't discover this until after the molds were cut so frame mods weren't able to be made to address the issue. The next best thing for a fix was to have Fox use a very small bumper internally to slightly shorten the stroke of the stock shock to prevent the contact. I doubt this has been accounted for with the Monarch's, so be prepared for tire strikes!

    This issue is well documented and fixed with the custom Rock Shox Monarch we have on order.

    To fix we have ordered custom shocks with bump stop to reduce travel and prevent tire hitting seat tube at full travel.

    Customers with issues on existing bikes could upgrade to the Monarch as a fix.

    The valving also makes for better more responsive ride than with the original Fox.

    The shipping part seems to be fixed today, was able to get the estimate at the checkout.

    Do I order direct from http://shop.titusti.com ?

    Roped in a couple of buddies who's been drooling over mine and building up for them. So just trying to go with the most hassle free way. Thanks.

    If not..those deals are not appealing. especially on the bikes with carbon rears.
    The word I have received is there have been very few issues with the full carbon rear ends used on the Rockstar (both Al and Ti), and the Carbon and Ti X and FTM frames.

    The rear end on the aluminum X and FTM frames is a different design and all of the ones on the Titus Shop are more robust "2010" version.

    Future supply is still being worked out with the suppliers.

    Just placed order for a brown medium el guapo. Initially I had an issue with my order going through on the website so I called phone support and they were very friendly and helpful. Tried my order again on the website while on the phone with support, went through that time and they confirmed it. Frame ships tomorrow and shock ships in two weeks!!

    Other than for the carbon X, there does not appear to be any seatstays for the X on the online store. Or does the carbon X seat stay fit the Aluminum X frame?

    Guapstar freak experiment

    I haven't seen a Rockstar, would that rear end fit an El Guapo?

    If the main pivot spacing is the same, seems like the seat stays could mate to the EG rocker w/ a bolt and a couple spacers

    Any shock update Shiggy?

    Did you ever find out what tune it is? Will they be in stock in two weeks? How about spacers, do they come with the correct spacers?

    Hope

    2 Orange EG ordered.
    2 more potential ones.. is there a further bulk discount?


    on a serious note, are those proprietary size main pivot bolts and shock mounting bolts available?
    I don't see them under the spares and if available, is there anyway these could be added in with an order?

    (I searched but dont think the size of the main pivot bolt was given out before for the EG and havent taken mine out to measure so far).

    Way I look at it, yeah, they may not be happy, but had they pushed Titus more than Specialized and Trek then Titus may not have gotten into the shape they were in.

    Right or wrong, it seems to indicate to me that Titus is not pursuing a retail strategy going forward. The LBS won't be too enthusiastic about selling Titus after this fire sale. I"m not criticizing, but that seems the logical conclusion. I hope that Planet X knows what it's doing, because they probably burnt their bridges pretty badly with the LBS on this one.

    Do you think they would have luck getting bikes shops to purchase their remaining inventory??? I think at this point it is more about getting some inventory moved and cash flow coming in. Honestly, I would think any LBS would be sceptical of buying any Titus bikes at this point because they do not know what is going to happen and if their is a warranty issue, Is Titus really there to take care of "Their" customer.

    Let's try not to muck up the Factory Store thread with political banter and market forecasts, create another thread more on topic for that please. I don't want to have to go digging through dozens of pages just to get info on the available parts. Thanks.

    All the Info is in the first post.

    There are already several "TITUS" threads, no need to start another one.

    Then go post your market and company politics predictions in one of those threads, it's off topic here. This thread is about the Factory Store and website, have some respect for the OP.

    I've been searching for a main pivot bolt for a while now. Filled out the Titus form as soon as it was available.
    Hope Chris2fur's gonna start making these...
