    Strengths:    Light weight, perfect welds and construction, good cable routing, incredible ride quality

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    I'm 5'8" and went with a small (17") and it fits me perfect. Steering is fairly quick with a 120mm stem, but not too fast. The ride quality is very smooth for an aluminum frame. I don't get jack hammered going through the rough rocky sections like I used to with my stiff M80 frame.

    I like to ride technical singletrack with lots of roots, rocks, logs, and drops. A local riding trail has several 2 foot drops on a rocky downhill run that I bomb through on almost a weekly basis. No problems in the strength department, but then again I only weigh about 140 lbs with gear.

    While I've built mine up to be a reliable XC trail bike (I don't race), this frame could be built up to make a very light, fast racing bike. I'm very pleased with this frame and plan to ride this thing for years.

    Riddler HT modular SS/sliding dropouts (wanted to buy)

    Blast from the past ; I have an old Riddler HT that I have mounted up with the standard dropouts for rear derailleur config. Unfortunately, when the frame was in production it never occurred to me that I might want to have a set of the alternate horizontal sliding dropouts for setting it up as a si ... Read More »

    Could the Riddler make a return?????

    Now that Titus has rolled back the Road line and Returned to SAPA for off site production. Wouldn't it be nice to see the return of the Riddler into production in both 26'er and 29er and geared/SS dropouts?????? Or am I just dreaming?????? This was the cheapest of all Titus offerings and brought ... Read More »

    Titus Riddler SS dropouts...Where can I get them?

    I've got a nice Riddler frame lined up, I want to move the build kit form my Bianchi to the Riddler frame but I need the horizontal SS dropouts. I've called Titus, they said they don't make them any more, they gave me the name/number to the largest Titus resellers in the nation to no avail. ... Read More »
