- Anyone got/ ridden/ got a real time review of the Titus FTM?
I had the FTMc, if you search this forum, there are quite a few comments on these.
Its light (25lb build possible without too much effort), I thought it was fairly plush (others thought it was more taut) but pedals well.
Lots of comments re. a relatively steep head angle but I never really found it an issue.
A bargain, I’d have another.Posted 4 years agoConan257Member
Happy with mine. 27lbs with 150mm Revelations, Hope/Flow wheels and 2×9. No silly lightweight stuff, fairly burly build.
Just be aware there have been issues with Monarch shocks rubbing the frame (frame was designed for RP23). Easy solution is to turn the shock around front to back.
Only issue I think are the lack of and cost of spares. Mech hangers (I’ve demolished 2, which is a little odd as I’ve never damaged one on any other bike) are about £20 if you can get hold of one, and bushing kits retail at £50 (bigger name brands can be found for around £25). I’ve some play in the main pivot and will be doing a service in the hope I don’t need to replace the bushings yet.
Another minor point is the internal guiding is made for normal cables/outers/hoses. I upgraded to goodridge and they’re too big to fit in the normal fasion which has made for some custom routing (still internal, just not as designed).
Head angle not too steep (as mentioned above) but I am running 150mm forks.
Edit: I have an FTM Carbon… Don’t think it’s that different except maybe a pound lighter than the Alu version.Posted 4 years ago
