    New Titus

    I just saw this video over on the Titus board. I think it's pretty cool we have some sweet frame manufacturers here in our home state! Enjoy!

    The Titus and pivot frames are all made in Taiwan (or someplace overseas)... well, Titus might make some ti frames here still... not sure

    There are a few really sweeeeet custom frame makers in AZ... FORM, Coconino and Oasis come to mind but there are many others...

    Well, I can clarify this point. Our 29'ers, our aluminum X and aluminum FTM's are all made up in Portland OR, by SAPA and the same is true for the 2009 Motolite and Racer X's you see on sale now. The majority of our Titanium has unfortunately been outsourced due to the harsh economic climate, but it is still being made domestically. We do however make ALL of our custom Ti and some rush titanium jobs in-house.

    Our Carbon bikes and the El Guapo are the only three frames of our line that are made off-shore and that primarily has do do with the technologies and fabrication processes that these manufacturers employ.

    Feel free to ask us any other questions about our bikes. Thanks.

    I must say that hydroformed Ti looks way cool. Nice innovation.

    Is there a reason for the "Full TILLT BABY" typo at the beginning?

    Nice!!! Thanks for the clarification. I used to ride a Titus a few years ago, when they were all still made here, and had multiple front triangle issues, which Titus took care of every time. The last warranty frame was one of the first Taiwan made ones and it was great! No issues at all, held up fine and I was very happy with it... so not saying being made overseas is a bad thing at all! Keep it up, you guys have a lot of cool stuff going on!

    may i also add Andy Gilmour, Siren & Bohemian........... there's also many "hobby builders" but i only consider full time insurance holding builders to be "bonafide" as per recomendation. insurance is a must. if a builder says different it's because they are thinking of themselves, not you............just sayin'. i've been mulling over a low-key AZ builder meeting - maybe a BBQ @ Fort Tutthill? we could all split a remada.

    For showing seat stays that offer more clearance, those are some skinny tires on their builds.
