    Titus Riddler SS dropouts...Where can I get them?

    I've got a nice Riddler frame lined up, I want to move the build kit form my Bianchi to the Riddler frame but I need the horizontal SS dropouts.

    I've called Titus, they said they don't make them any more, they gave me the name/number to the largest Titus resellers in the nation to no avail.

    Does anyone have some Riddler SS dropouts lying around you don't need anymore?

    The company called "Prayer and Supplication" comes to mind as to finding discontinued CNC'ed parts from Titus..........just kidding.......Maybe Asahi could pipe up, he's on a SS Riddler he just got last year.....

    Thanks everyone..

    No luck as of yet.

    I do find it disappointing that Titus doesn't have parts available for a bike that was produced in 2003-2004. Granted the warranty has expired, but still, it'd be nice to know that parts would be available for these frames for quite some time, not ended as soon at the model goes out of production.

    The Riddler was my dream bike a few years back, I suspect that it had more to do with the fact that they had a fair number of failures at the discbrake tab area and that's why it went the way of the DoDo........in all fairness, the failures were all offered great deals on HCR's(Ti frames) at great discount and a lot of people jumped on the chance.

    Piping up. I got what the dealer was told were the last set of drop outs. They were used and I got them for a steal but they were take offs and I was told they didn't expect anymore. I was happy with used ones but it is disappointing you can't get them anymore.

    I'd say ask Titus who CNC'd them for them.

    Asahi actually got his dropouts from Titus. They had a Riddler in as a warranty and it had SS dropouts, I think he got them free. That maybe your only chance of getting your hands on some now.

    Are you still looking for a set of SS dropouts? I now have a set for sale if you are still interested.

    I have had a creak for a while that I thought was a creaky Ti BB, but tonight I discovered the infamous dropout crack is the culprit.

    PM me and we will figure something out if you are still interested.

    Unfortunately it is true. I was pulling the dropouts off to Loctite them when I discovered the crack this evening. Now I Wish I had picked up one of the Ebay Riddlers last week.

    I have just been filling out the online Titus custom bike page. Not sure on Ti or Exogrid, depends on what sort of deal they will cut and how soon Kristy wants siding on the house.

    With the Red bling I have on it my comment earlier today about Red and Ti looking so good was strangely prophetic.

    If you get TI/Exo you have to do the red hub/red nipple combo you were pushing to Bret.

    A house with proper siding rather than Tyvek wrap will also look amazing.
