Just not sure how to pimp it out.

Titus is using a FSA integrated headset on the carbon frames.

How did you get one so quickly? What's your target ww weight?

Now it is Titalized StumpX. Previous designs were so much attractive instead of this "X" design crap.... I'd still take the Ti or the aluminum....

:rolleyes:

Limon, do you upgrade your bike every year? You seem to have the ultimate unstoppable "I gotta have the latest and the greatest or I'm gonna shoot myself" bug.

We Appreciate Your Feedback...

my bad.

I meant to say, "Titalized EnduX."
However, we also realize that we can't please everyone's taste. Although, if you take into account the product development life-cycle you would realize there was no way we could have even remotely looked to Specialized for design inspiration and have the two models be introduced in the same model year

Secondly, the "X" frame design is nothing new to Titus. Check out the inset photo of the attached image. You will see it is in our heritage. If anything I would say Specialized was copying us.

Thanks for your time.

Jeff, I am still looking for one of those thru-axle seat stays (also shown in the photo you attached)...PM me and I'll send you my mailing address. ;)

Secondly, the geometry numbers of the Supermoto DH always throw me for a loop. 17.75 inch chainstay length and a 14.7 inch BB height :eekster: ....my oh my how DH geometry has changed.

Also, love the color options!

Titus Jeff, no hard feelings meant from this side. I wasn't pointing fingers specifically. It just seems to me that the Racer X or X looks very similar to the new Spesh Epic, and now the X carbon looks very similar to the Spesh Enduro. Two for two seemed like more than a coincidence to me, but I'm not pointing fingers at either side..... Just my two cents.

I can for one say that I am more than happy with my Titus X, actually got a few podium spots last year.
