    Yeah, I put it on my '01 S-Works Steel. Was going to be a SS project, but when I started rebuilding it I just couldn't do it. I put the old Deore DX cranks back on it then finished it up with some new brakes and the x9 / x7 rear der/shifter combo from my MotoLite.

    The S-Works Steel is a sweet ride (for a rigid) to be sure.....

    Did I say "BLING"?

    Just put some new I9 wheels on my racer-x. They ride great and look..... well a little more bling than I am used to at this point. Everyone who has seen me on trail, says they look cool in motion. I think the pink bottle cage is over the top. I may switch it for black.

    Looks like you're "goin' for the gold"!... Cool I-9's. Pretty sweet I must say. don't get it dirty!

    BTW, what scale did you use to weigh it? I'm jealous, because I can't get my racer x (large ti w/ full xtr) below 26 lb.

    Haha thanks, it is actually still kind of dirty in the photos, you can especially see it in the last photo of the hub and cassette. It gets raced every other weekend or so, so I try to clean it up as much as I can in between but I still don't get it perfect.

    I weighed it with one of these:

    http://www.competitivecyclist.com/mo...642_FALSE.html

    What else is on your bike besides the XTR gear? Easy places to save weight are tires, saddle, seatpost, handlebar, stem, wheels, and pedals.

    Same scale as mine...
    tires: tubeless Kenda Nevegal or small block 8's depending on conditions.
    saddle: stock Maxim (seems comfy)
    seatpost: stock Maxim carbon (considering Easton EC-90 upgrade)
    Bar: Ritchey carbon riser
    stem: Eastom EC-70 carbon 120 mm
    wheels: XTR tubeless (sub 1500g)
    pedals : Wellgo ti-spindle (sub 300g) they tend to get trashed on rocks around here...

    Motolite II

    Built this bike after hand-picking the parts. The only problem that I encountered was that the lockring on the SRAM cassette was too big and the lockring rubbed against the derailleur hanger bolt bumps. Just filed down that area, and replaced the SRAM 991 cassette lockring with a Shimano, and problem solved. Since this photo was taken, I swapped out the pedals for some Shimano Clipless. Ridden this bike for a few months now and I'm loving every second

    Scootch that red thing outa there and sneak in a TI El Guapo. New cars are over rated. They become "used cars" real fast.

    Heck of a quiver TE. How much action is the Fireline getting?

    Here's my Titus



    My Motolite started as a complete but has seen a few upgrades. I replaced the cranks with some Race Face Evolves, the wheels with Mavic CrossMax STs, the drivetrain is now X9 rear derailleur and shifters, and I put my favorite Oury Lock-On grips on. Weight is around 29lbs.

    Yeah, you are right, it is a rear LED flash red light. It is a FOC stuff. Thus, can't expect something good. Lotsa my buddies said SHE looked great, but the rear LED light doesn't matched HER.

    Here's my new ride. Except from the tires I'll be running this set up this season. I'm waiting for some Nobby Nics to get here, but it takes forever. My old Kedas will have to do the job until they appear. I'm also looking into the new Shimano XT wheelset, they're sah-weet. But at the moment I really can't afford any more bike stuff.

    Hope you like it!

    The bike weighs 25.2Ibs. Not too heavy, Not too light. All that matters to me is that I can ride my bike anywhere and enjoy every second riding it.

    Considering we haven't seen one of these in a while in a sea of Motolites

    Here's my '01 Switchblade. Still running strong, replaced the chainstay about 2 seasons ago. Rebuilt her entirely in 2003. She was red, but made her black and blue. Replaced the fork from a RLC100 to Talac RLC a few months ago to match the longer travel rockers. Just had the shop redo the seals on the shock. Still lovin' it..

    Three weeks old, ridden 3 times (it's been raining a lot here). Love the Moto, but I'm still getting used to the high bottom bracket.

    Thanks. The stem is a 60. I originally had a 90 on there, my hands were hurting after about an hour. Plus, I like a shorter more upright cockpit. I like the fit of the 60, but the front can get loose on steep technical climbs. I may try a 70.

    Why do I love my bike?
    A sleek, straightforward, cross country machine.
    Even when I feel weak and slow, it still gives me what I need to saddle up and roll.
    After awhile, I'm cruising along not thinking (so much) about feeling sluggish,
    but instead just feeling the rush of the landscape rolling by.

    I was stuck in a St George motel after dislocating a finger and ended up looking at this bike in a funny kinda way!

    Took awhile but the silver has been ditched. Not because of the color even though black is dead sexy. Really been loving this bike. Rides like a dream.

    Upgrades are as follows. Rest of the bike is stock.


    Wheels- Roval Traversee
    Tires- Specialized Eskar 2.3 front tubeless
    - Specialized resolution 2.1 rear tubeless
    Bars Easton EA-70 monkey bars
    Rear Der. - SRAM XO (got it on the cheap)

    Beautiful bike - but seems odd that with the hard hitting componenets like the Atlas crankset and the free ride platform pedals you would go for such a fragile, lightweight fork ?

    A titanium flat bar might suit it better and they make titanium spacers as well

    Or, you could just hang it on the wall as art.

    Do you ride Moto-X? That rear brake line over the fork crown should have a second look.

    Nice bike!

    My two Ti Titus' (one Exo)

    Some assorted pics of my El Guapo Ti (just got it - new bash guard on it, not pictured, and better suited pedals in the mix), and MotoLite ExoGrid.

    Did my first Super D ever on ML Exo (shown), along with two gnarley XC races.

    Panoramic shot is from SnowShow, WVA from the top of the 6000 Steps XC trail.

    (Yes, I know bolt is missing in pic on my Exo, I needed the washer for the EG build-up, you know how that goes)

    I think my trail dog "Molly" in picture is wondering what this "thing" is!!! And saying "I hope my biped feeding unit (me) doesn't hurt himself because I am always hungry)

    Fireline 2008 Large frame (3.52 lbs.)
    XT hubs, crank, brakes, fox 100, carbon bars, ODI grips, maxm post, WTB shadow seat, 819 wheels, Kore chain tugs (Horizontal dropouts), 32*18 gear.

    Setup is meant to be durable, and it still weighs 22 lbs. - I ride the rough stuff... Might upgrade the wheels to XT or Mavic crosstrails (1 lb less, still as stiff).

    Gave it a real shakedown today for the 1st time. Good stuff.

    Man, duckman, that bike looks awesome! Is the 22.7 a typo? I assume you really mean 27.2?

    No typo. 22 pounds 12oz. including bottlecage and pedals.

    Best wheelset includes 400gm 2.25 Furious Freds run w Stans Olympics(Revos front/Supercomps rear) w yeller tape only/1 scoop sealeant(my XC race only wheelset). Front 160 Stans alum rotor/140 floating rear. 11-34XTR cog. Bolt on skewers. 168gm 4ti Eggs replace the 2ti Eggs in the pics.

    Those wheels shown are an old bastage set with big tires(2.4 King, 2.2 Karma), tube in the back(Stans front), heavy 11-34XT cog. 2ti Eggs.

    Other parts include old school but light 5 bolt RF Turbine LP cranks w 135gm 'all alum spindled' FRM ISIS BB(replaceable bearings) w alum crankarm and chainring bolts. Alum=steertube/cap bolt, shift pinch bolts, rear caliper bolts. Ti=rotor bolts, post clampbolt, post saddle rail bolts, stem bolts. Ritchey Pro stem. Titec Ti riser bar(cut down to 24"). XTR 952 triggers(w/o indicators) XTR RD. XT FD. Foam grips. 165gm Flite TT saddle. Thomson Masterpiece post. Float 140 fork. Hope Minis w above mods. King HS. Topeak stainless cage.

    Pick w above stuff but no FD yet. Yes the weight includes the FD . I wanted to see how light I could get it w my best stuff. Obv its not practical w those tires. Except for maybe the very technical Snake Creek Gap 34 mile TT race this winter.

XTR 952 triggers(w/o indicators) XTR RD. XT FD. Foam grips. 165gm Flite TT saddle. Thomson Masterpiece post. Float 140 fork. Hope Minis w above mods. King HS. Topeak stainless cage.

    Pick w above stuff but no FD yet. Yes the weight includes the FD . I wanted to see how light I could get it w my best stuff. Obv its not practical w those tires. Except for maybe the very technical Snake Creek Gap 34 mile TT race this winter.
    The ML is a killer climber but I can't imagine what it is like to climb on a a 22 lbs ML!

    ... and if we just ... Titus Racer X Ti

    My first build, currently a little portly at 27 lbs but should get a little better by changing out the Hayes with some Avid Juicy Ultimate Hydraulic Disc Brakes. I stole the Hayes and Sun Rhyno rims from my old Giant ATC to try it out unitl the Avid's arrive next week.I'm still thinking about rims.

    03 Locomoto, am I crazy or just plain Loco?

    So, I have this crazy idea that I can race this classic frameset with a bunch of cool stuff on it and compete at high level. It's 23.5 pounds and rides like a dream.





    F100x Pushed w/ 2008 high volume air chamber
    Am Classic/Stan's Olympic disc
    K-Force Lite w/ 38t ring (1x9)
    XO shifter and RD
    Juicy Ultimate rear and Juicy 5 front (a budget thing)
    Trigon integrated carbon bar/stem combo
    Thomson Elite setback SP
    Special Ed tires for now, Furious Fred 2.4 rear and Rocket Ron 2.4 front later.

    Red Barn Bicycles ordered them for me - http://www.redbarnbicycles.com. It's actually a RacerX decal set and they weren't cheap but they come on a nice stiff sheet, laid out in a way that it made it super easy to apply them perfectly straight and exactly where you want em.

    I actually also have a full original Switchblade decal set if anyone else has a switchblade and wants it, the Titus factory gave it to me but I decided not to use it. I never cared for the original logo (with the exception of the metal head tube badge, which is awesome) so I went ahead and paid for the new style stickers.

    Nice shot. I like how the top tube follows the slope of the mountain behind it.

    How did the HH handle the trip?

    Thanks!
    It was a great bike for this trip. Almost as fast as the big bikes on the descents but much easier and faster to get to the summit. I put a 180mm rotor on the front which was a big improvement - no fade and less finger fatigue.

    RX29 in Oregon

    My 2008 SM RX29, from a recent June ride in Oregon.
    The RX29 has been a great bike in the varied terrain of Western OR. Built up with X0, Deus, Martas, DT/Salsa wheel & 600gm tires, plus a few lighter components, it's 25.1#s. Could be worse.

    Haven't been so impressed with a frame, since my 1994 Brodie Expresso.

    Bikebob, it sounds like I need to update my profile. I am actually now out in Denver riding the front range for the most part. I can only imagine that the RX would eat it up at Vulture's Knob though. That's still one of my favorite trails.

    Thanks for the kind words on the bike. The Fulcrums are doing their job very well. I have been riding on them for about two months now, generally 3 times a week and they are what they say they are. Light, but not the lightest, super stiff and staying very true. No complains so far. Bought them through chain reaction cycles when they were on sale for 35% off making my wallet like them a little more too.

    RacerX 29er

    Just built her up. JensonUSA frame deal for $1100, and added a couple things. I stripped another bike to build her up, and luckily most everything transferred over.

    I got it on a reputable bike scale today, and it comes in just a smidgen under 30 pounds. I thought it would have been lighter, but that is not bad in the grand scheme of things, I s'pose. It doesn't feel that heavy on the trail.

    Old Sugino Impels from ReCyclery for $15... add a new BB, swap meet rings, new 30t Vuelta middle ring and BAM! Ideal 29er gearing! 20/30/42. I spent some time polishing them to a high luster, only to have my shoes rub it off. owell.

    06 ML in small (no carbon here)

    My 06' Moto-Lite
    XT Drivetrain w/XTR shifters
    I9 All Mountain wheels w/Kenda Nevegals 2.1 (sneaker of choice around here)
    El Camino brakeset w/7"frt/6"rr rotors (I've had some problems like others on this forum. But when they work, they work fine.)
    Fox TALAS 32 RLC
    Thomson Elite seatpost. X-4 stem w/Monkeylite XC bars ODI Ruffian lock-on grips.
    Chris King headset (originally on another bike 8+ years and as smooth as the day I bought it.)
    Purchased this bike at the end of 07' after getting a great deal at my LBS.
    She has a huge ding in the down tube from one of our many local rock gardens, (Pisgah/Dupont) and lots of various scratches/chips. I use Testors Model Master Gunmetal with just a tiny bit of Chrysler blue mixed in for touch-ups. Seems to match very well. But the anno just doesn't hold up very well.
    Having said that:
    I ADORE this bike and will likely get an FTM eventually. After 1500+ miles over nearly 2 years in some pretty gnarly crap, I would recommend this bike to anyone. If you've got one, you don't have to ask.

    Finally get to post my steed!

    I know its not as new or bedazzled as some of the other sweet bikes on here but im pretty excited to have it. I picked it up used a couple months back and it was still equipped pretty much as it was in i think 2004. The rear DR was barely held together with a construction screw and it was still running V-brakes. I sill have to get some better wheels and many many other upgrades but was happy to get a cheap set and a new set of Elixir R`s and super sized rotors lol. even used, this is hands down the best bike I have ever owned.

    Was looking at all these Titus rockets and had to post my own.
    My Rocket! Bought it a month ago. Got a good price I think. $2500 out the door. I think it was a Frankenstien bike built with parts from all over the shop because I can't find a build package on web that matches it. Its an 09 model I was told.
    F100
    RP23
    Sram X7
    Avid Juicy 5's
    Maxm Stem, Bars,post and seat (love it)
    Tru Vativ Stylo cranks
    DT Swiss X455 rims
    DT Swiss 240 Hubs

    This thing can climb anything. I have a Specialized XC Comp and there is no comparison. The XC does OK on down hills but up hill it's a nightmare, the frame seems to twist with every crank and traction is a joke. It could be the tires.The traction I get with the RX is fantastic. I weighed them both on bathroom scales and the RX was 28lbs and XC was 33lbs.

    I was up there last winter (Cahaba) and the had a frame just like yours that they said someone ordered, but then changed their mind. said they planned to just build it up with parts. Dont know if yours is the same one or not.
    Looks like a good spec on it. I have already dumped about 1-2 lbs off my FTM since I got it. There is some room for weight loss.

    digging the new fork fixed at 130mm. That and the large can pushed shock make for a buttery smooth ride
