A simple thanks to a company that has, and continues to crank out great bikes in tough times. Titus is one of very few shops that make Ti FS bikes, and even less with their own rear triangle (FSR). Ti FS bikes in three flavors - EG, FTM and X, and custom if you wish. A Ti hard-tail Fireline is a nice choice and custom is an option again. Mix in some Exogrid on the FTM, X or Fireline if you like or go with an AL version of the EG, FTM, ML, X or RX. How about a steel/exo Fireline hard-tail? CF-X? 29'er? You can have one of those as well. I have owned three Titus bikes and have nothing but bomb proof rides and perfect customer service.

A small group of people that continue to offer all of this is not easy I'm sure. Thanks for making these rides. :thumbsup:

yeah, why not? Titus has definitely contributed to putting pressure on the industry to improve designs to come up with better and better performing bikes...

i think it's pretty sweet when the little guys kick butt on the big guys and force them to make better stuff :thumbsup:

It is a good idea to say Thanks to Titus new and old for all the great bikes they have made past and present.

Each passing month, their new line is looking better and better. Revamped kits for their bikes shows that they are listening to their dealers and customers (I have for the last 3 years thought their kits were overpriced compared to their competition ie Yeti, SC, Turner and even Pivot). Finally they have some kits blinged priced reasonably.

I thank Jeff for being the heart and soul of Titus right now. Not only is he the marketing voice, he goes out of his way to get feedback from past customers and to their feelings about promotions and products. He just doesn't do it in as Homerisc manner as other manufacturers on MTBR....PM's and personal emails are great.

I thank Titus for doing what it can to still be around for us for us in the future. It may upset some how they do it (myself included at times) but it is necessary if we want them to stay viable for us that may buy another one of their frames in the future or need their help on past bikes.

I would have thanked them more if they had made their garage sale available to all consumers or old patrons.

I would have thanked them more if the design and production team had stayed the same as well. A few years back, a Titus dealer posted a Titus made Frame alongside a ABG made frame and I am still speechless over how much nicer the Titus inhouse frame was over the Litespeed one. However I like the fact that Titus is now accessing a source that can make and manipulate Ti Tubing better then they could which will hopefully improve their new frames even more so.

I will not thank them for going the route of a Canadian distributer (ie another middle man and increase in LBS pricing compared to US pricing). I foresee them pulling a Yeti/SC and bullying their dealers into not selling to International customers if that country has a distributer. Notice how Jenson is not allowed to ship to Canada.

But yes Thank you Titus for my amazing fleet of Titus bikes. Maybe someday I will be able to get another one. As to which one and from where, I do no know YET.

I can vouch for Jeff being a really nice guy. I've met him at SOC for the last 3 years, and he's always cool and stoked to talk about the bikes. Did I say that the new EG is really sweet?

You did Zorg. I think you should pick one up and bring it straight to Demo. Invite Dom. He'll be forced to part with some hard earned jack.

:) For some reason, the EG is the most underrated bike in their line up, although it's probably their best.

Geo. What breed is Gracie? Looks like the light is on. Nice dog. :)
Gracie is a mutt...30% german shepard, 30% border collie, 30% black lab, and 95% demon.

She shoots first and asks questions later.

Yup... Jeff is the man. I don't have good enough words to describe Jeff's contribution to Titus.

Keep up the good job, Jeff! Keep it up, Titus!

oh, and thank you for the Switchblade. It rips.
