    I just don't get too many pics of my 2008 EG in action, but here is one taken by the world famous (okay, Arizona famous) Durtgurl.

    Finally got a pic of my month old '09 EG. Built it up as an aggressive XC/Trail bike. At 31.5 lbs, it has exceeded my expectations in every way. The pic is at the top of a nice grinding technical 3000' climb on Christmas eve.Titus Bike Pr0n-cimg0541.jpg

    That looks really good! I got a green one in the works too.
    It is it the angle of the picture or is your chainstay a different color?

    Thanks. The chainstay is the dark grey (almost flat black) one. I had seen pictures of both it and a silver one also. In fact, the picture for the frame on Jenson's site (where I bought it from) showed the silver one, which is what I expected. I was happy to see the gray one when I received it, I think it goes better with the green. Kind of a weird rough finish on it though, not real easy to wipe the dirt off of.

    Good luck finishing yours, you're gonna love it.

    I hiked the Tom's Thumb trail in the McDowell Mountains (AZ) with a friend on 12/23/09. Took a few pics at the top, this is my favorite. That's the thumb is in the background.

    Thanks, I love this thing! I'll probably beef up the front end with a oversize stem and bar when I have the funds. The bars are 24", is that too narrow? My shoulders are about 22".

    Those are somew wide shoulders! I would go, at least, 28" on the bars. Much better control.

    Are you running a tapered fork or a 1.125" fork? Just curious to see how it handles using steer tube reducer headset cups, etc.

    I'm running a '10 Talas with tapered steerer, and a Chris King Devolution headset. It's my first 36 mm fork, so I can only compare it to my Intense 5.5 w/32 mm fork - the EG is WAY more solid feeling up front (more solid feeling all over for that matter). I love this bike!

    I see now I should have gone with the Float or even the Van...I see little use for adjustable travel now that I've been riding it for a while, and I miss the lock out feature for sustained stand-up pedaling.

    My family is now part of the Titus family

    I just got this HCR for my daugther today. Some of the components are cheapy but they are all new. The frame is almost in perfect condition, she is upgrading in he juniors and her bike was her mom older trek fuel, which must be about 30lbs.

    The pics arent great, but you guys will get the idea. I have some cool Xo stuff that I can add as well as a real crank and maybe be some magura martas

    So first race weekend is next sunday.

    codename47,

    we're the same height and i ride a xxs racer x. i was wondering how the xs motolite fits you. from the geometry, i see that the ML top tube is about an inch longer than the racer x. do you feel stretched out? how much travel does the rear shock have? from the titus website it states 4". i just found a xs 2008 ML on ebay and have been debating buying it. the seller states 4" to 5.5" adjustable rear travel.

    thanks, d

    Hi,
    that's my wife's bike, not mine but I thought mostly about it. Rear travel is 4" or 5"(not 5.5). With the stock Radium R she was not able to move it - it has one stock level of platform so we moved to RP23 PUSHed - it has proper rebound and sag now. Here's my wife's dimension: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=495449 - you can use that fit calculator if you want: http://www.competitivecyclist.com/za...LCULATOR_INTRO . Her previous frames was with 56(RAM HT1), 55(Iron Hores MK3) and 54cm(Scott Contessa) ETT so I don't know how XXS like Racer X ot Yeti ASR(50/51cm) would be. It seems to me that she is not overstretched. I'm planning to put 120mm RS Reba so the standover trough the front shock eye will be 72cm and the BB around 34cm. Hope this helps. If anything else interesting you, please ask.

    Nice bike! Also, how does she find the Titus after the Iron Horse?

    @Vespasianus, she was riding IH with 85mm fork before I found 140 so it climbed very good, but the stock shock of MK3 didn't worked too - when she set the correct sag with low pressure, the rebound became very slow and the suspension didn't work well overall - especially when descending and the weight goes to the front wheel. When we put 140mm fork to IH she was not able to stand over the frame. Head angle of IH was steeper than Motolite both with 140 fork, so steering of second is better when goes down. Motolite has longer wheelbase(because of slacker head angle) and maybe half of inch higher BB then IH. Which suspension is better i cannot decide, maybe acceleration of IH was better and didn't bob but that could be because of not working shock

    Took some pictures from my first trip out on the RX-1, purchased in January. Had a good time, the bike feels great. The pictures are kind of huge.

    Tire rub

    Hank,

    I see you've got a Reba on the copper ML. Do you ever have any tire rub or leaves/debris getting caught in that tight space between the tire and the arch? I have a Recon (same lowers AFAIK) and I'm running Nevegal 2.35" and I'm experiencing both.

    I didn't ride the Reba on there long. One ride was on a rails to trails beginner ride, the other two were on trails like pictured. Mud and debris weren't an issue. I did notice clearance on the 2.3 was tighter than I liked. I went back to my Talas R. I tried a Revelation for awhile. It's a nice fork with good clearance but I didn't like the bar mounted lockout. By the time I have 2 shifters, 2 brakes, a lockout, a Garmin 305, and (sometimes) a light mounted, I felt too geeked out and the handlebars too crowded.

    Sorry no trail pics yet, it's a new build and I haven't gotten it out on the trail. I'll be abusing the hell out of this summer at Whistler and Mount Galbraith! I think I might try to make that Pearl 3.1 blow up. Running an RS Domain 318 uTurn fork in front.
    Weighs in around 35lbs.

    Been thinking about putting a smallblock on the front of my racer but have concerns of cornering traction. Eric how you liking it so far? I have a Nevegal on the front right now but sure does feel sluggish at times.
    Ohh yeah, nice bike and welcome to the Titus Family! The Racer X is a rocket and climbs like a mountain goat!

    Here's my "new to me" 2005 Titus Racer X. I picked it up off of Craigslist and built it up to update and replace my 1997 Kona Manomano. It built it to be solid and reliable

    Here are the specs.

    Fork: 2010 RockShox Recon Race 100mm
    Headset: Cane Creek S-3
    Wheels: Shimano XT/Sun Rhyno Lite
    Tires: Panaracer Fire XC Pro
    Shifters: Shimano Deore SL- M590
    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano SLX Shadow
    Crankset: Shimano Non-Series FC-M542
    Pedals: Shimano PD- M520
    Brake Levers: Avid Speed Dial
    Brakes: Avid BB7
    Stem: Felt 100mm
    Bar: Titec Flatracker
    Grips: Odi Ruffian Locking (due in soon)

    Finally finished my 2008 ML-1 build..

    I would just like to say to everyone in this thread, thank you for sharing pictures and details of your amazing bikes!!
    <br>I watched this thread for months when deciding on what new bike to build/purchase after my last frame cracked.
    <br>My Titus ML-1 is probably the best fitting and best performing full suspension bike that I have ever had!

    I have the cables routed over the bars in a funny way because the black plastic and yellow thing strapped near the front of the bike is a camera mount. Its the best POV and mounting position I've found when using the ContourHD 1080p. Check out the video below to see it in action.

    <br><br>






    <br><br>

    I went through a few stem and handlebar setups of various lengths and degrees of rise, seat adjustments and a new wheel and tire set to get it to where I feel its now dialed. I've only put about 300mi on it so far.. Many, MANY more to come!

    Shrike, fantastic build. Looks stunning. Can't wait to hear your ride report and comparison with the Heckler. Also, more pics, both of the EG and the italian alps! They are both gorgeous!

    There are better colors. Gold might be hard to live with over time. I much prefer the white, black, and orange ano.
    Or better yet, check out the 2010 in green or blue. You get the redesigned seatstays as well as the tapered head tube.

    Just had to throw another pic in. Got the going over the bars feeling everytime I hit something a while back and been experimenting with it to get that Loving feeling back again. Finally bought new riser bars for it and that did the trick. Tried a couple of different things and never would have thought about the bars but a freind mentioned it. Back in love with the RX.

    Now with shorter 50 mm stem, wider bars and better brakes. I also put on some wider tires. A 2.4 Rubber Queen and a 2.25 Fat Albert, I like the combo for the terrain around Phoenix, I don't wash out much anymore.

    New pics

    Just wanted to show some pics. New grips BTW and wonder why I waited so long to replace the old ones. Much better Lizard skins. Had WTB that were really thin. Gotta love an RX. Wishing for an FTM or El-Guapo. But ain't we all.

    Man I've been contemplating the switch from the stock rp23hv to roco tst air ! I'm just afraid the $300 swap isn't gonna be $300 the difference. What's your experience?

    Titus El Guapo 2010

    I wanted it to be more DH spec'd so the parts are a bit on the heavy side, but the fork really isn't that bad with the titanium spring. All in all it is just under 36 pounds. It pedals up really well... but I buy bikes to go down

    I just installed this Roco Air TST R! Straight out of the box and down my steps, the Roco air feels amazing! Makes me wanna chuck the crap foxrp23hvwhatever! Too bad Titus didn't spec the Guap with a worthy air shock. Just squishing around on the pavement, the compression in the rear feels like a 6in bike should....----OOOOH I can't wait to hit the trails! I'll post more well-lit photo later!

    New stuff!

    I've been using this winter as an opportunity to shower my Motolite with gifts. The biggest upgrades were wheels (Cobalt) and drivetrain (X9). I also thought I'd give 11-34t cassettes a try.

    Here is the current set-up:

    Rider: 6'2", 180lbs with gear
    Riding Style: Trail, XC

    2007 Titus Motolite II (black, large)
    Weight - 29.4 lbs
    Shock: Fox RP23 XV Air Can, Pushed
    Wheels: Crank Brothers Cobalt
    Tires: Front - Kenda Nevegal 2.35 DTC Rear - Kenda Dred Tread 2.1 UST (not running tubless)
    Crankset: Shimano FC-M442, 22-32, 32t BBG bashguard (2x9 setup)
    Shifters: Sram X9
    Front D: Shimano SLX FD-M665 (double)
    Rear D: Sram X9, Med Cage
    Cassette: Sram PG980 11-34t
    Brakes: Shimano Deore BR-M486, XT RT76 180mm rotors
    Fork: 2010 RockShox Recon Race Solo Air 120mm travel (w/PopLoc)
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Candy C
    Headset: Cane Creek S2
    Handlbars: Crank Brothers Cobalt 3, 15mm rise, 700mm wide
    Stem: TruVativ AKA 80mm
    Seatpost: TruVativ Hussefelt 25mm offset
    Seat: WTB Silverado
    Grips: ODI Ruffian Lock-On
    Bashguard: BBG 32t

    Unless my wife pulls the financial plug, additional future upgrades will include brakes (debating between XT, SLX, and Formula RX), crank (XT or SLX), perhaps tires (Nobby Nics?), and QR15 fork (Fox F120).

    Great bike.... Love the wheels. I have a set of XT brakes and love them but I would recomend the Hygia Elites over the XT's. They are cheaper, lighter and just as easy to use, not to mention stop you just as well adn use the same pads. They come in many great colors to. Check them out. I think you can only get them off ebay. I really like mine.

    Rider: 6'2", 180lbs with gear
    Riding Style: Trail, XC

    2007 Titus Motolite II (black, large)
    Weight - 29.4 lbs
    Shock: Fox RP23 XV Air Can, Pushed
    Wheels: Crank Brothers Cobalt
    Tires: Front - Kenda Nevegal 2.35 DTC Rear - Kenda Dred Tread 2.1 UST (not running tubless)
    Crankset: Shimano FC-M442, 22-32, 32t BBG bashguard (2x9 setup)
    Shifters: Sram X9
    Front D: Shimano SLX FD-M665 (double)
    Rear D: Sram X9, Med Cage
    Cassette: Sram PG980 11-34t
    Brakes: Shimano Deore BR-M486, XT RT76 180mm rotors
    Fork: 2010 RockShox Recon Race Solo Air 120mm travel (w/PopLoc)
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Candy C
    Headset: Cane Creek S2
    Handlbars: Crank Brothers Cobalt 3, 15mm rise, 700mm wide
    Stem: TruVativ AKA 80mm
    Seatpost: TruVativ Hussefelt 25mm offset
    Seat: WTB Silverado
    Grips: ODI Ruffian Lock-On
    Bashguard: BBG 32t

    Unless my wife pulls the financial plug, additional future upgrades will include brakes (debating between XT, SLX, and Formula RX), crank (XT or SLX), perhaps tires (Nobby Nics?), and QR15 fork (Fox F120).
    Got the XT brakes. After a few other tweaks, I have the bike weight down to 28.8 lbs.

    Honestly, I think that there pretty heavy and they flex a bit in really heavy corners, but they seal up well tubeless with the Bontrager rim strips.

    Pretty much every thing was a swap over from a cracked Fisher and I was in a hurry to get the Titus built up. They will be one one of the first things to go come upgrade time. But will probably keep them as training/hack wheels.

    RacerX29er update:

    Lefty!!!

    I found a schmokin deal on a Lefty Max 140 SPV. It was originally slated for my singlespeed, but it doesn't have a lockout. Gotta have the lockout for Singlespeeding.

    So I installed it with a Project321 adapter, found the other little bits on fleabay and slapped it all together. I had to reduce the 140mm of travel to 110mm. I could probably get some of the travel back if I do some careful measurements, but 110 is plenty. It has the same axle to crown as a 100mm Reba, and changing the travel does not change the axle to crown measurement.

    I love this fork so far. It's plush as heck, and has good 'point and shoot' factor.

    My 2010 X Carbon

    Love this sexy girl and she rides as good as she looks. Too bad the seatpost broke yesterday. Any suggestions for a good, lightweight replacement for the Titus Carbon SB post that was on there?

    That is a GREAT looking bike.

    The best seat post out there are the Thomson ones. They are not light but they are sure not to break. They also have the widest seat clamps I have ever seen, which means you will not bend the seat rails as easy.

    Man, dulyebr, the old Motolite looks great! Can't believe that it is a 2005.

    I just moved to a 2011 5-Spot and am thinking of re-building my Motolite as a lightweight racer, much like what you have done.

    Do it! Really fun having two bikes; although the ML is my only bike at the moment.

    Just finished my Titus FTM build. It's not very blingy, but it's ridable and that's the biggest thing. A quick ride around the retention pond in my neighborhood tells me that it's very well-balanced, quick accelerating, and climbs well. Can't wait to get it on the trails.

    Bling is overrated! I'd steal your bike any day!

    I like your cable routing for the front FD. I should try that someday. Mine still goes through the rocker arm, yours looks like it should shift much "smoother".

    It's an L/L Tune which is standard on the Carbon X. Would like a stiffer PP option for climbing and rolling terrain.

    Good job!

    I don't ride often in winter but this was after a tromp in 4" of fresh powder... 35lb EGs are horrible as XC bikes in snow

    @madkrie: you might have some clearance issues with the Shimano high band FDs. Test fit one before you buy.

    I don't have an X Carbon, but on my FTM(which should be fairly similar), I've had issues with the Shimano XT HighClamp FDs. The cable would rub the seatstays.

    I switched to an XT Low Clam FD and the cable cleared the seatstays just fine. However, I didn't like the way the cable *almost* rubbed on the seat tube.

    I'm now running a SRAM FD and it looks like the cable routing of my FTM was specifically designed with this FD in mind.

    ps.. .shifting was much smoother with my XT fd than with my SRAM XX FD but that was also probably since i was running 22-32 gearing with the XT and am now running 24-38 gearing with the XX.

    madkrie, the Carbon frames use a high clamp 34.9 FD.

    The seat tube flares a bit at the bottom so a low clamp does not fit.

    Also, high and low clamp derailleurs have the cable clamps in different locations, requiring the housing stop on the seat tube to be angled differently.

    High clamp FDs need the cable pointing toward the driveside.

    Low clamp FDs need it pointing toward the left side.

    El Guapo rides again.

    I cracked my frame last September riding in Whislter. I did not notice it until I was home, so I'm not sure when it happened, but it could very well have been the GLC drop. That one is so fun to go big off of.

    Titus Bike Pr0n-glc1b.jpg

    Titus offered be a pretty good deal on a front triangle, but the new tapered head tube would have meant getting rid of 2 forks and headsets that I have $$$ invested in.

    So instead I had the frame welded (top tube / head tube junction), heat treated, and powder coated. Also installed new frame bearings, new brake lines, new shifter cables and housings, new seat post hydraulic line, new wheel bearings.

    My Crank Brothers wheels also did not survive the whistler trip, and looking back, I should not have expected them to. Oh well. Next time I take a proper park bike.

    I'm just glad to have it back on the trail!

    MoonDogg I don't think your Crank Brothers wheels can survive this kind of drop every time...it will cry every time your pickup your bike.How ever nice drop....

    Very nice rebuilt... I like to mount my lights centered too
    That battery location would seem "default" for the EG due to the way the tubes are curved and impossible to place elsewhere..

    I built up an El Guapo last night and I have fallen in love. I was nailing tech lines and hitting jumps i never was able to do on my old bike. Once I weigh the bike and get my brake lines trimmed, replace my chain and 18 year old FD I will take quality pictures and do a proper bike check. I am running a 180mm domain up front and a marz roco wc in the back.

    Awesome bikes! And great job with the custom colored EGs...that original rocker link is a bit fugly on the raw EG. I might try and do that, too!

    here's my new medium V3, I just switched over all the parts from my 2009 large EG, only headset, fork and saddle are new.
    Partslist is under the pic link.

    Great bikes! You guys have added some nice personal touches.

    Here's mine, 2010 FTM. She has gone through several upgrades but I like how she's finally set up. She really handles the local single tracks, climbs real well and is fun going down the fire roads. I may tweak it a a little more but not much more left for the trails around here.

    The fork is undergoing some mods and tweaks to get it a bit more compliant but I like the 140mm travel. I may add a dropper post. Love the bike.

    Ruegamer Uberlight Titus Racer X

    Last week I built up this bike, using a Ruegamer carbon frame I bought on eBay. The frame was custom-built here in Arizona a year before the carbon Titus Racer X went into production.

    I'm about to replace the Rock Shox Monarch 2.1 shock with a 180-gram DT Swiss XR carbon shock, which will save some weight and provide a lockout. Then the bike will be done except for machining out an XTR M970 front derailleur clamp so it will go around the fat seat tube, although I usually prefer riding without a front derailleur so installing one is a low priority.













    This bike rides beautifully. I'm amazed at how comfortable it is and how well it climbs.

    There are lots of thorns here, so I always use Slime tubes, even though they weigh 320 grams apiece. With them installed, the bike as it's shown here weighs 21 1/2 pounds.

    Here's the bike with the new 180-gram DT Swiss XR-180 carbon shock I installed today. Dialing in the air pressure and adjusting the rebound was easy, and this shock has a lockout for sprinting and hard climbing that works perfectly.

    This bike rides so well it amazes me.

    The last upgrade for it that I'm working on is building a RockShox SID fork.

    Finally finished!!!

    Hey everyone, finally finished building my very first AM MTB. Been a long 6-month project, mostly dead time waiting for the damned fork (advice: do NOT pre-order a Marzocchi fork, get what's in stock. I ordered the 55 RC3 Evo Ti in July (no U.S. stock) and the US still didn't have any by February. Ridic!). I'm not gonna lie, she's beautiful as a virgin, not sure if I want to ride her . I also want to say that this would have never been possible without the support and guidance from this site; thanks to all that helped me out very much. I owe you all a beer. In case you notice, I'm a huge Pittsburgh Penguins fan, so I had some fun with part colors to show a little pride. Anyhow, here she is:
    EG Large (measuring 13.6" BBH)
    Marzocchi 66 RC3 Evo Ti 180mm
    CCDB Air
    XTR drivetrain and brakes w/ice rotors 203F/180R
    Xpedo pedals
    CK headset and BB
    Easton Havoc wheels/stem/seatpost
    Schwalbe Fat Alberts (tubeless rear)
    Token seatpost clamp
    ODI grips
    Loaded Precision straight bar
    Terry saddle (for now)

    Had a few upgrades, shot with the training wheels though, should've snapped it with the I9s. Time for a repost...

    Here's my El Guapo... NOT FINISHED YET. Waiting for a Durolux RC2. And I just got the 30.9 reverb today.

    Not really bling blingy but it's a great bike thus far. Still adjusting to the frame's suspension characteristics and the Monarch's feel though.

    Titus Bike Pr0n-p4pb9604168.jpg
    Titus Bike Pr0n-p4pb9604167.jpg

    BB's pretty low with a 150mm - it's at 12.5", hoping it gets to hit 13 point something inches when I have the Durolux on it. The big diff for me, aside from the suspension, is the weight. DANG it's light. Dropped a pound or two from my GT Force with the same components. And the geo is just great - EVEN if I still haven't felt the 67* of the HTA.

    Went from 2x9 to 1x9 and did a shake down run along with some suspension tuning. Here she is in her final form. I don't run a GoPro all the time.

    Thanks guys! I'm blushing lol it truly is a great bike, can do it all!
    Have a few ideas in mind, need to order some parts and fine-tune the set-up. I'll do a complete post in the EG Set-Up thread soon. My old set-up is in there with the white Marz 66.
    I'm also rebuilding an old MotoLite, finally got new pivot bearings so it's go-time to get that running!

    Not really bling blingy but it's a great bike thus far. Still adjusting to the frame's suspension characteristics and the Monarch's feel though.

    BB's pretty low with a 150mm - it's at 12.5", hoping it gets to hit 13 point something inches when I have the Durolux on it. The big diff for me, aside from the suspension, is the weight. DANG it's light. Dropped a pound or two from my GT Force with the same components. And the geo is just great - EVEN if I still haven't felt the 67* of the HTA.

    No official measurement as of yet, but haven't had any issues with it.

    Here are some photos...

    Just picked up an ebay ti Rockstar frame, and built it up with some unworthy spare parts. So far, this thing ROCKS...no pun intended.

    Soon to be purchased 02' Quasi-Moto

    Hello All,

    I'm looking for any good info and opinions on my soon to be purchased 02' Titus Quasi-Moto bike! Here is what I know:

    It is a cross between downhill and cross country. It has cross country frame but bomber forks that lock out for uphill climbs. Most cross country forks have about 4 inch travel these have about 9 inch travel. Much much much lighter than downhill bike. Price will be $350. How does it sound/look?

    I'm currently riding a 95' Cannondale F600! I love the bike! But I'm looking for a FS Bike now!

    That fork doesn't have anywhere near 9 inches of travel. More like 4 or 5 inches. Hard to tell exactly how much travel it has without knowing the specific model. $350 is decent as long as the bike doesn't need much work outside of a basic tune up.

    Sup guys, just figured I'd post my bike here since this thread and subforum seem pretty dead. I LOVE my titus, been riding it for 2 seasons now and it has not let me down yet. I use it for a trail bike and have ridden some gnarly terrain on it. Heres a pic of it from last year just after I built it.



    It's got some higher rise bars, XT front disk brakes, crankbrothers candy pedals, a KS i7r seat dropper on it now, with more goodies on the way.

    Man, that is nice. The ML is a great bike and your bike is a great example.

    I'm very very please with my rockstar and the ride is really awesome, track like a train and is not a boat anchor like others without braking the wallet. [IMG]https://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/06/03/ybapuqyh.jpg[/


    And. Fireinmtb. Your ride look awesome too.

    Protsi, that thing is awesome.. and LIGHT. I bet that thing flys on singletrack and mobs on people in the technical climbs. Mines sub 30# using a bathroom scale, but I have not been able to accurately measure it yet.

    Although with it being a trail bike most of the parts on it are on the AM/trail spectrum and made to take serious abuse. I've got a dropper seatpost on the way for it too.. so excited about that one.

    Are there any if the old school Titus riders still hanging out in this thread? I'm still riding my old Racer X 29er, and it's still one of the best handling FS 29ers around.

    Some damn fine machines posted here. Just got a dropper post and I've been loving it. It becomes so second nature when you get used to it, I seriously use the thing 20+ times a ride.

    So far so great. What an awesome bike!

    Me sending it on my 09 Titus motolite at the bike park, the rock on the left is the lip. Terrible screen cap, but you get the idea.



    So far I've ridden this bike in many different conditions, has yet to fail me.
