    My Fireline Evo Ti LTD 29er

    Hi
    As I have just finished my Fireline Evo LTD 29er I thought I would post a few pics.... Its tubeless & weighs in at 25.06lbs, all up with Stans fluid in the tyres.Its 3x10, as I am used to 3x9, and may go 2x10 in the future with a bash instead of the outer.

    I seemingly can’t post pics here as I don’t have more than 10 postings on this forum……
    BUT If you go to the Singletrack Forum – on the ‘bike forum’ and search ‘Titus Fireline Evo Ti 29er’ I’ve posted some pics on p17.

    On my first real ride - a 14mi loop which I have logged on my Garmin - it has not proved faster than my Titus FTM Carbon - but may just need wearing in a bit and that ride was in the summer!

    John

    Hi Jalll

    I have heard of a 69er (29F & 26R) but yours must be a 24F & 29R = 49er??

    Re: Who is ordering a fireline EVO?

    the hubs on the late images were chris king hubs mango with marwiti spokes tai day mango nipples and ztr arch

    today i have tried a more hardcore build...fork at 120mm wheelset hope pro 2, marwiti spokes and flow rims, with ardent rear tyre and hans dampf front.... pufffff

    the shimano front derrailleur needs a bit more tunnig to get more clearance with this tyres.... or get a sram one...

    Reviving this thread to see if any of you owners have more pics of this frame built. Just found it and very tempted by it, seems to be the perfect HT in my books, the numbers I've wanted, in Ti. Only question whether or not it has sufficient clearance for decent size tyres (2.4" Ardent) and mud clearance? Also, thoughts on the ride quality, lateral stiffness vs vertical compliance etc.

    SuperDrive at low speed and medium speed technical, needs big balls to push faster on fast DH but the wagon wheels smooth it out.
    Playful, fast, fast and responsive. A really great ht and great geometry, but it suits groomers and man made massively IMO.
    Would really suit a pair of hans dampf but you'll have to ditch the front mech....
    If the trails here were buff and dry all year round, there'd be little else to touch it IMHO.

    But my Nicolai still rules in the chop ......

    Sounds like my kind of fun, I like slow speed, rocky, steep tech Have you ridden any of the other HTs with similar geo like the Paradox, Yelli, Honzo or the like? I've always wanted a Ti bike, but thought I'd have to go custom to get the geo I wanted, but this is pretty spot on. I have a Paradox and what I'm looking for is something of the same feel, juts a little bit less harsh and I figure the Ti and thinner tubing should do that, just was curious how much softer ride it did actually give compared.

    lynx - it replaced my Ti456 [lynskey].

    i'm not noticing any particular harshness, it feels very playful and certainly feels best on steeps and switchbacks , groomers etc.

    geometrically, it's biggest asset is the short CS but of course this limits tyre choice with a front mech fitted.

    QA/QC not the greatest, but mine is the Fileline and TBH, mowt wrong with it - perfect really.

    ISCG, tapered HT, ideal.

    looking forward to more summer / dry weather to get a bit of speed up

    Bumping this again to ask Brant when he's expecting the new batch to come in and be available? Really stoked on this frame, still love the Paradox, but just sold it for some financial needs and looking to replace with one of these in a few months, eager to see if Ti is all it's cracked up to be

    It's a new model. It wasn't going to be, but I think that's a great name :-)

    (TBH means "to be honest"... )

    Ah...I should have caught that. I just purchased a new Fileline and I was worried there was some other issue that I was unaware of, like maybe "Too Big a Hole" or "Tube Bent to Hell" or maybe even "Too Big Horizontally". lol

    Fileline HT Prep?

    Did anyone have to prep their head tube? I have a 110 EC49 lower and there is no way it will press in properly without a 20mm deep ream job. Anyone else use a cane creek ec49 or King Inset 3 and NOT ream?

    Do you recall if the HT looked like it was reamed already from the factory?
