    Titus HCR On The Cheap

    I got this frame from an mtbr dude last spring - put it together with a mix of used parts I had lying around and here she is.

    Last time I weighed it, it was 23.2 pounds - that was with an old skool Marzocchi Z2. Since then I've installed the SID, but also swapped a few other parts around. It's still prolly in the 23 pound range. Totally expenditure - in the area of $800.

    The key here is I had parts lying around - headset, stem, bars, brakes, levers, derrailleurs, cranks, bb, pedals, seatpost, QR's, etc

    I got the frame for 375, wheels for 100, fork for 250.

    Unless you got a full groupo just lying around, you're going to spend LOTS more.

    I have everything. x7/9 components, XT crankset, Mavic wheelset, SID fork. all of it.... just want the Ti frame. I am swapping most stuff from my full susp. bike over. I figure I want something lighter, and faster to race on.
