Hi crew...

Post here all your Racer-X's along with the most detailed specs and set-up you can.
Data like seatpost, front derailleur, BB and other relevant sizes is even more welcome.

Cheers,

the clincher

I was waiting on a (much delayed) Blur XC until the morning I saw the pics of your bike, about 2 hours later I'd cancelled the Blur and placed an order for the RacerX above.

No regrets.

How did you like your first ride? Details....Details!!! The more I ride mine, the more I love it. I swapped out with a buddy today to let him try mine. I now know why I left my hardtail
days:thumbsup:

much vagueness

...how did i like the ride. i was amazed at how natural it felt despite coming straight off a hardtail.

Ran the the RP3 at 90% of my weight (in lbs) and didn't notice any bob, in fact only realised how well it was working when i turned the propedal to +ve and locked out the fork...wow. Sprinting was great it just felt fast and smooth, again didn't notice it bobbing.

Was blown away with its ability to soak up some of the bigger moves, found myself jumping into the descents and technical sections rather than picking my way down the smoothest line. really opened up my riding this weekend.

need to work on the fork settings as it seems a bit soft so far. but otherwise am v.happy.

Hh/rx100



My bike started off as a 23.5 2002 Hammerhead 100x. After 2 years of use, the frame cracked at the seat tube/top tube junction. Titus took care of me and sent me a custom front triangle (one of the first to have that brace on the top tube). The new front triangle came stickered as a RacerX100, so I guess that's what I call it now. I love this bike..

Mavic 317s with Hope XC hubs (4 years and still straight!)
Tioga DH 2.3 tires (heavy but worth it)
XT RapidFires
Avid Speed Dial levers
Avid Mechanical discs
XT Front Der
XTR RapidRise rear der
SRAM PC59 chain (used to be a 99, but I break those things)
Fox RP3 in back (run at 110 psi - I'm 170lbs)
Marz Comp XC 120mm front fork (run with 35psi)
Chris King Headset
Easton Monkeylite handlebars
Thomson 110mm stem
Titus seatpost (I got it gratis from Titus because the new triangle had a different sized seat tube than the old one!)
WTB something or other seat

I've never weighed it, those Tioga tires surely add a lot of weight, but they are oh so cushy at 25 psi, and traction on rocks like you can't believe. Its probably in the high 20's.

Where did you get the Ti bolt kit? They'd been out of stock since the'06 frame released in January. I've been checking back and nothing is projected for 3 more weeks.

Also, I gotta see that thing on a scale. My bike is 25.5 lbs and the main place we differ in weight is wheels and tires but I'd be surprised if it was 2 lbs.

My wife has never said word one about my bike spending and I just built a Titus Eleven (Ti) Single Speed and got the Racer X in January but I'll save that ring reply for just the right moment :)

I ordered the frame with the Ti Kit, It may have helped that the order was placed in August. The wheels, tubes and tires are feather weight. Just for good measure I threw in Ti rotor bolts. I think the wheels weigh 689 front and 788 rear.
But it is nice and light,

Old picture

I'm a very buy guy and this bike is built with that in mind
Stealing someone's formatting.
Frame....................2001 Racer-X (Easton) Large
Fork.......................Marzocchi Z2 Atom Race With heavy springs
Shock....................Fox Float RL
Wheels..................XT/36 DT Straight/Mavic X517
Tires......................WTB Velociraptors -- Yeah, they're better stuff out ther, but I like em
Crank.....................XT
Chain Rings............XT
Front Der............... LX (Couldn't find an XT in stock that day)
Rear Der............... .XT
Shifters................. XT Rapidfire
Brakes...................XT V's
Chain.....................XT
Cassette .............. XT 11-34
Pedals...................Time ATAC -- Yellow (Not pictured)
Seatpost................Syncros
Stem.....................Generic Specialized Black one
Headset.................Chris King
Handlebar...............Easton something
Its an old, rather boring build, but for me its friggin perfect
My dad has a much older racer-x
Frame....................Unknown year (pre-98) Racer-X (Alcoa -- this thing si much beefre and stiffer than recent racer-X's)
Fork.......................Marzocchi Z3
Shock....................Fix Alps
Wheels..................Hugi/DT/X517
Crank.....................XTR (1st gen splined)
Chain Rings............XTR
Front Der............... XT
Rear Der............... .XT
Shifters................. XT
Brakes...................Avid Single Digit
Chain.....................XT
Cassette .............. XT 11-32
Pedals...................Clips and straps (Defective SPDs caused a torn ACL, don't blame him)
Its a hodge podge of parts, but very solid. Its also a testment to Titus that it still works, flawlessly, after so many years (I'd bet its 10 years old). Also, before we bought it, it was rental in Moab. This bike has seen abuse that would kill lesser bikes.
And the fact that my titus handles me without complaint is pretty cool too.

Here's some info, anybody let me know if some of this is off.

Shock Lenght: S through XL 100 use a 7.875 eye-to-eye and a 2" stroke.
The S trhough XXS 80's use the shorter 6.5" eye-to-eye and a 1.5" stroke.
(I think this is valid for '04 and on, as there were not any 100's before 2004)

Seatpost size: Pre 2006 RX's used a 31.6 seat post and 2006 use a 30.9 (although due to a slight varaiation in manufacturing on some of the 2006's a few have left Titus as 31.6).

Front Derailleur clamp size on all Racer X's is 34.9 and that is regardless of the model year. Top pull/top swing front derailleur is required.

Seatpost clamp: Same as FD's, 34.9.
