Cool, I too got HH100x after all the praise on this site... I guess it's now 4 years old or is it 5? Dunno, might have to check the email archive.KRob said:Cool. Classic Titus rules. I guess you have taken it on some sweet jumps! :thumbsup:
I was "this" close to buying an ano blue SB back in the fall of '01 when I saw the HH100x and fell in love. Changed my order and waited 'til March '02 to get it. I still have it and still ride it a lot..... and still love it. Just spent $250 upgrading the drivetrain and replacing all the cables and housing. It feels like new. Still rock solid. Floats like a butterfly... Stings like a bee.
It's seen over 6 years of hard riding. I guess I'd better start checking the welds, huh?

My HH100x is still fantastic bike, here are some of stuff worn out or broken: 3 rear der hangers, 2 derailleurs, 1 full set of bearings, 3 or 4 Octalink BB's (another one needs to changed this weekend), bag of shock bushings, at least 4 shock repairs (none after Pushing!) and spare shock, on the second wheelset etc. I have the original Fox Float 100RLC (have tried couple of forks too) and CK headset there. Zero frame problems during this time.
Seems that Charles is not at the Hammerheadbikes anymore? Too bad, HH100x is a classic. Most breakages were from lowers and seat tube / top tube junction and there weren't many of them.
about two months ago, give or take.iridetitus said:when did charles sell the shop?
Above Arctic Circle in Finland until last fall when we moved to southern part of the country....in general it is wet during spring and autumn and winters are cold (-30F is not unusual. I keep my bikes in unheated shed so that might explain some problems with the bb and shocks.KRob said:Where do you live markom? Is there a lot of wet/muddy riding? I've ridden mine for thousands of miles and am still on the same octalink BB. Still smooth as new. I did replace the crank once mainly to get the new chainrings. Just barely replaced the original XTR rear derailleur. Have never even looked at the pivot bearings and they are still smooth and wobble-free. Same CK headset. Same Avid BB7 brakes (I did replace one bent rotor). Original Thompson seatpost and stem. As you can see though, I ride in the desert.
Yep. Charles sold the shop apparently but I have it on good authority that the new owner is super cool and is covering all existing warranty issues and is great to work with also.
