It was a brilliant event, the vid is giving me the shivers again. speaker2animals April 25, 2009 at 12:40 amIsn’t that Titus the new Spec Epic? CountZero April 25, 2009 at 12:43 amApart from the colour, is there any appreciable difference between the Titus and the Spec? My choice would be the Titus, just because I hate the way Spec buy other peoples patents then charge for the use, despite never doing any development work themselves. Seems like a very American thing. Plus I do really like Titus’ Exogrid frames. Mmmmmm, much salty goodness. portlyone April 25, 2009 at 1:32 amI neeeeeeed some parmegianno to heal my barbed wire fence wounds. Got any spare, like? I only ask since you don’t have any brakes/skills courses on offer 😉 mildred April 25, 2009 at 12:51 pmIf that Titus rides anywhere near as good as the Super Moto I’ll be having one next year. That’s got to be the nicest looking Titus I’ve seen. 0range5 April 25, 2009 at 9:22 pmmmm, yes the Titus & the Spec do look rather similar. More importantly, what issue will have the results of the cheese test? Admanmatt April 26, 2009 at 12:11 pmSomething has arrived from Kona that will make Matthew very excited indeed.I’m having to pop in the officr today just to have a look! ;] elaine anne April 26, 2009 at 11:28 pmhmmm, where did you get the Titus FTM from ? did you buy just the frame and build it up yerselves…. i wanted a motolite, but i cant find one. chipps April 27, 2009 at 8:56 amThe Titus FTM is brand new into the country – which is why you’ve not seen it in any other magazines yet. I hope they saved me some cheese…Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
