Yep Juicy's

"final weight?"

Haven't actually weighed it yet, but am estimating in the 26-27 pound range....
When I get my hands on a scale.... I'll update.


"always great to get another ride report."

I certainly plan on submitting one by the end of the weekend. If it is anything like the demo I rode prior to ordering, it will rock!!

Mostly standard...

It is very close to a standard medium, with the main change being a slightly longer seat tube to keep more of the seat post internal, because I usually ride with the seat way up there... I just got it in, so haven't dialed in any of the settings yet....

hey thrash....though I can make a lot of it out, post the complete specs for the bike. that would be great to see as well. also, some close ups would be sweet.

cheers

Specs... Close-Ups should follow later (when I get more time)

Medium Ti MotoLite:
Fox RP3
Fox TALAS RLC 90-130
Thompson Stem
Chris King Headset
Avid Juicy Sevens
SRAM X-9 Triggers
SRAM X-0 Rear Der.
XT Front Der.
XT Integrated Crank/BB
Mavic X819/DT240 Hubs
Specialized Adrenaline 2Bliss tires
MAXM Isogrid Riser
Eggbeaters

I guess that just about covers it... I did not keep track of individual weights for parts, but will be weighing the whole rig as soon as I find a decent scale for that purpose.

I want close up pictures. No, in fact I demand it. (I'm wavering back and forth on a Ti Motolite...)

yes, I agree. I am finding thrash to be extremely rude here to tease us this way ;)

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I liked your more when I did not have the close-ups to look at......now I really hate you ;)

dude....seriously, that is truly art as far as I am concerned. It just looks so well thought out and personalized I cannot believe it.

Congratulations and please do not show pictures after it gets dirty......I want to keep those images in my mind :p

Dirty now...

Well, it is dirty now...
and man does that thing ride like a dream!!!

It tracks and corners like it's on rails... amazing confidence inspiring descender...

On climbs, just stay seated and keep the power to the pedals and it will roll over anything. I have to say that Titus have outdone themselves with this bike. I officially could not be happier about how this bike performs.

I'd say, if you can swing it... go for the Ti it is incredible. On the plus side, turn-around on the Ti frame was MUCH faster than has been mentioned on here for the Al. Mine came in only 2.5 weeks later than the original estimate of 6 weeks, so if time is an issue... that is one way around it.
