Strengths:    Tracks and handles well. Climbs awesome,flys downhill. Relatively light. Well balanced. Very durable and solid bike.

Weaknesses:    After 3 1/2 years, I couldn't really find any.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike. I can't say enough about it. It still rides like new. No creaks or squeaks. I only had one minor frame failure with seatstay. I jumped off stuff all the time. My prevention method for that was; no more jumping off anything over 4 foot(I kept forgetting it was only a XC bike). Repaced bearings once after a major mud race at the 24. But other than normal maintenance, this bike has held up extemely well. It is, to this point, the best overall bike I have owned or ridden. It accelerates nice with no flex. I am at one with it. Titus makes a damn good product and they stand behind their stuff. I just wanted to submit this final review on this bike(only my 2nd) because I moving up to a 5" travel bike. Racing or seriously challenging terrain, this bad boy handled it all. My Hammerhead was awesome.

Strengths:    Very ridged rear triangle. Ability to twitch through the trees at light speed. Telepathic handling

Weaknesses:    no power windows, no cig lighter

Bottom Line:   
This bike is the sh*t. Much nicer than anything that I have had before. It has soooo much balance. The rear carves corners. It is really easy to be very confident on this bike. It's very light also. What can I say? Get one! Charles and Beth at Hammerhead we helpful in fitting me and taking my riding needs into consideration. When I went to pick it up they helped get the right air pressure in the shocks for me. This is a first "custom" bike for me so the extra attention was great to reinforce that I was getting the best bike I could get.

Could you get away with a bike for less? You could get the Titus frame and put a 80 mm fork on the front. If you do have the extra cash to blow why not go all the way.

Budget isn't a concern- looking for advice on bikes to consider- I ride city park, walnut, th ... Read More »

Hammerhead 100X vs. 2008 Kona Four Supreme

Hi, I am in the enviable position of having both a HH 100x frame and a Kona Four Supreme frame to build my next bike with. Both are in great shape, the Kona is new and the HH is being dropped off at the powdercoat shop tomorrow (all bearings/bushings are being replaced too) so it is basically new ... Read More »
