If you’ll remember back for a second, Titus was recently closed down by their factoring company for situations not entirely unlike what just happened to Race Face. Then, retaining a single former Titus employee (Ben Webster), they’ve worked at lightning speed to bring several models into production. Sealed cartridge bearings in the front rocker and main pivots with Igus bushings in the rear near the axle.
Dropouts are full carbon fiber, and the frame is a monocoque front triangle design with full carbon seatstays save for a small alloy insert at the pivot. They’ll also offer a model with an alloy front triangle but the same carbon rear triangle.
This alloy hardtail 29er is internally nicknamed the Riddler, an homage to an older Titus model.
Titus’s Facebook page announced that they reduced prices on many models to help get funds for the purchase of RaceFace.

The one place where I found the bike a touch awkward was on a section of tight switchbacks where the long bars and big wheels seemed to slow me down a bit. You won’t find “passion” or “innovation” on the list of standard features of the Racer X 29er. We feel the main thing that makes the Racer X 29 great is the fact that it is based on our proven and award winning Racer X platform which features a modified McPherson strut rear end. We still feel that taller riders benefit the most from the 29” movement and have made our design considerations around that belief. I don’t understand why all the 29er shootouts are with smaller riders, when the bike is made for a taller person!

I do not want to create a separate thread for every little question I have, so I'll use this one for all of them. The 10th Annual Whiskey Off-Road captures the essence of what mountain biking is all about. G2 will work well with a more-slack HT angle - which you surely are about to have, especially if you go with a 100mm of travel up front. I've owned, built, ridden, and raced 6+ RX29'ers, with all manner and type of fork on them. Assuming it's made in the US as the Titus of old, I'm really excited about the Racer X aluminum 29er!

It’ll be available next month because the rear triangle was already developed for the Rockstar. They’re renegotiating with that tube manufacturer to continue to use that design, so its future is TBD. We’re looking forward to see what comes from the brand and glad to see them back in the game! Since RaceFace employees are being picked up by others, I’m skeptical that, after buying RaceFace, it would be restored to anything like its former self. First of all, the only reason we got a titanium bike is because the aluminum Racer X 29ers were not available at the time of the test.


But since the bike seemed light and the suspension firm, it was fairly easy to put some english to maneuver it around.
This was a large frame with a suspension design that prohibits Titus from dropping the TT (top tube). The build quality, ride characteristics, and just sheer fun factor was off the scale on the Racer X.
The Racer X 29er is not a “day-glow” look at me sort of rig….it exudes confidence, stability, and quality – and that is exactly how it rides.
If I manage to snag one at chainlove sales I can ride it immediately and I can upgrade it gradually as I get more aftermarket parts. I'm still mulling over the choice, but right now I have several specific questions I hope you guys can answer.
Also, look at the Canzo a bit more travel for a full suspension bike for taller guys and still really cheap compared to most.
I ran a Reba U-turn 100mm-120mm fork on it so I could get all the handling I wanted depending on where I was riding. I think I'll be using Shimano XT m770 crankset since it seems to be of high quality and reasonably priced. Are you saying that 120mm F29 reduced to 100mm will feel different (more cushiony) than 100mm native? For the price I got it beggars can't be choosers, and I don't think it looks all that bad, actually if I can fit the rest of my bike all in black I think it will look rather good. For 2010 fox introduced FIT which from what I understand reduces weight and helps on long descents. I know these are not really comparable, but if I'm to buy stuff from classifieds or ebay, which one of the three things G2 offset, RL vs. I get your point about colors, but in this particular case that's too much bling for my taste.
So close that he predicts the alloy version of the Racer-X 29er bike (carbon version shown above) will be out in about one month.
They took the Rockstar concept and tightened up the geometry to make it more of a XC racer. The only change is that it’ll use a full-length cable housing run to the rear derailleur. At any rate, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some form of titanium model from them soon. I had a rather high opinion of RaceFace and Titus, but now I treat them as any other middle of the pack brand. Ignore the value factor though as the aluminum versions should be available in early 2007 and they will be a bit cheaper than this frame. With an all Titanium front triangle and an all Aluminum rear swingarm the bike is light and supple and stiff where it needs to be. The same harmonious suspension of its little brother, but with the superior rolling of big wheels, it leaves obstacles in its wake.
My Trek 7000 is totally fine for that, however, I was thinking about doing some light trail riding as well. One, I can either buy a used frame and build the bike from the ground up, or two, I can buy complete bike on one of the chainlove sales and upgrade parts to what I want later. I will also have easier time upgrading it since I have basically zero experience in bike building. I have found that C gives you control over initial force required for the shock to start moving. Here's a bunch of Titus 29er prototypes, snapped on their way to the Willingen MTB festival.


This one has a 70? head angle and 73? seat angle combined with a slightly higher bottom bracket. Alloy version has the same tubeset of the Rockstar, but the tweaked geometry for racy XC performance. This is true of all full suspension bikes but especially so for large 29er frames where weight & frame flex are even more of an issue. The Racer X can rollover most anything, but if you feel the need to pick a better line the Racer X does listen. I've been doing a lot of research in the last couple of weeks, it's been very painful as I didn't know the terminology or what to look for. However, I'll probably want to replace tires, front derailleur and shifters right away, and possibly the rest later.
I don't think there is much difference between 100 and 120mm, but then again I don't have much experience. I went to a Sette Razzo frame that climbs better and descends almost as good and drop 3.5 pounds of frame weight.
Yes, it will be more difficult, but there is an upside to it, after I'm done I'll be able to do my own maintenance without paying exuberant tune up fees.
Meaning all 120mm F29s can be converted to 100mm and all 100mm F29's can be converted to 80mm? What I couldn't find out is by default on RL version, is it low amount of force, or high amount of force? We'd love to know what you think, get in touch below and follow the action on Facebook.Titus Exogrid Fireline 29er HardtailExogrid is the most technologically advanced tubing ever produced. We looked for more adjustability in the RP3 with this bike but it appeared difficult to get all the travel out of the bike.
Conversely, consider how a 26 inch bike benefits an average size rider over a smaller wheel size, such as a 24. Selling Trek 7000 and OEM equipment will help offset the costs, but it is still going to be expensive. Fusing the incredible feel of titanium with the strength, lightness and tune-ability of carbon, Exogrid is the ultimate material.
Yes, I could fix this but at the price of a Titus I expect the builder to spec what is best and this isn’t it.
Reviews say it's an awesome XC bike, and I think given our mellow terrain in IL, it should do fine on whatever trails we have, it's not like we're a big plain, but it's kind of close. Building bike from the ground up might end up being cheaper as I will have all winter to get stuff on sale at ebay or various classifieds, however it will be more difficult because I have little bike building experience. Exogrid takes laser cuts the Ti sidewalls and substitues a high modus carbon sleeve in it's place, resulting in a frame that is light, perfectly balanced and above all incredibly sexy. Imagine the smoothest, classiest titanium ride possible, and then add some, and you get somewhere close to this one.
Updated with a tapered headtube and completely revised geometry, initial tests of this new 29er place it firmly in the pro race category: blisteringly fast. This Lynskey made sample sports a completely different rear end, shorter wheelbase and higher bottom bracket. The first new titanium Titus frame to come out in some time, this new Rockstar could potentially be the definitive "ride everything" 29er full sus.
