    Is Titusjeff in the house ???? Help

    Jeff, can you give us some indication on the weight of the Ti El G frame..

    Has been a mention that it maybe lighter than the Ali counterpart... Is this factual?

    Much appreciated, your team of Titi owners.

    My question too!

    On the demo tour the Titus rep said the Ti version would weigh just a little more than an aluminum Motolite. If so I'm in for one next year!

    It'd be nice if it'd be kept in the line-up. Maybe as a dedicated FR machine now the EG is here. So now there would be a full line up, but yet with few models covering the spectrum.

    HT? Eleven
    XC Race? Racer X
    Trailbike-AM? ML
    AM-Light FR? El Guapo
    FR and beyond? SuMo

    Five models, a full line up with no holes in it. You get rid of working out multiple rockers and lowers options, yet you can still provide shock options for all needs.

    Maybe not offering options for rockers and keep it with the FR ones and a coil over, so you wouldn't have overlap with the EG.

    The SuMo is still a top notch bike with lots of years left in it. I hope they keep it. It's also a great value as it's priced today.

    I thought the new version of the SuMo didn't have any of the options.

    I THINK there was a post from Titus Jeff stating that you can still get the FR rockers and a coilover.

    This was a reply at someone who posted that he was told by his shop that you can't get the FR rockers anymore.

    Or was it only for the coilover thing???

    I could be wrong, though. I'm speaking off the top of my head. Honestly, my memory sucks big time.

    If you weren't such a drunk, maybe your memory would be better.

    Actually, Warp, you are correct. The coffin/FR link is available with DHX 4.0 straight from Titus as an option.

    Whafe, I was told that it may come in lighter as well. I offer this information despite the fact that you left me off of the early serial number list.

    The EG will NOT be Exo because of where the shock attaches to the downtube.

    I guess since the EG makes all the other Titus bikes "obsolete", that now Exo is also obsolete.

    When I saw the EG Ti at Sea Otter, Jeff said that the prototype frame weighed 6.5 # if I remember correctly.
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    Demo could only have been referring to the 04-05 version. Maybe he was unaware you rode the new SuMo?

    Anyway I'm sure he'll be along any minute to humiliate me anyway... Damned silver tongue bastigerd.

    Sorry, but I'm going to have to hold off on giving actual weights until we get closer to an actual production model. That way I can give you the most accurate weights. We're still experimenting with some different tubing. Don't worry though, you guys will be the first to hear.

    A sincere sorry on that, but must say, none of you slack bistardoes replied to that post anyway....

    Kovi, as mentioned, a no can do with ExoGrid on the El G, As DS mentioned, on all tubes there is extras welded, was the first question I asked as well.... Seeing as the ride quality on the SexoGrid is just nothing but sensational....

    Thanks for the reply Jeff, we wait with anticipation, still think you could have given us a little heads up if indeed it would be at Ali frame weight......

    Will the Ti El Guapo be part of the custom fit program ?~?

    I hope not! Cause I fit a Titus large perfectly, makes it easy to seel a frame later when we upgarde to the El F Gaupo (The Focken Good Looking One) in two years time..
