I'm in the market for a trail bike to compliment my race bike. i thought i'd check out the FTM. 70.5 degree head tube. :confused: What are they smoking down there? my race bike is slacker than that. I live in CO. I'd kill myself bombing down some mountain with a headtube that steep. Seems like it should be around 69. it's too bad, that bike looks really nice. :madman:

Web site geo numbers are buggered...........The actual number is 69.25 degrees. Bob has confirmed this as a few others who have talked directly to Titus.

agreed. i'd probably be interested in purchasing if it was 68.5. i guess same thing goes for the racer-x though. 70 is much better than 71
Well, with a 160mm fork, it would be perfect!

Whats the BB on that bike anyway? and where would that put it?...
The BB in the catalogue is listed at 13.25", which I assume is with a 140mm fork. What would a 160mm fork move it to, say 14.25", which is still OK in my book.
