- New Titus Ti frames! 3xB!
Eagerly awaiting for the Big Dog to be unleashed just noticed two new titanium Titus frames on the On-One/Planet-X page:
@Brant, do you have the geometry charts to share? A rough ETA would be great as well for the impatient gits.Posted 4 months ago
Price on the Broken Road copy has gone up £200 in a couple of hours!!!. I registered interest and notification by email and it was £599.99. I wonder if they have had loads of interest and hiked up the price? Not such good value now. Think i’ll be shopping at Alpkit anyway. Customer service has to count for something.Posted 4 months agonukeSubscriber
Blimey, well spotted OP
Just comparing geometry on the small/medium with the Broken Road & Signal Ti and every number is pretty much the same… slight difference in wheelbase & stack on BR copy and slightly more differences albeit negligible on Signal copy. Its uncanny!
I see Signal Ti has gone up to same price as BR too at £1250 when use to be £1k iirc
Strange thing is that although they maybe the same frames, its fun how I’m not sure id be prepared to pay £800 for the Titus where as I’ve always thought £1-1.25k seemed pretty decent value for the Sonder frames!Posted 4 months agosaywhatMember
rear dropouts are completely different between the two frame designs- altho according to the on one site there is a 20mm range in adjustment.The sonder is a more typical adjustable dropout system than what On One shows. I would use it as an SS- and the 300$ less for the Titus is very tempting…Posted 3 months ago
I can confirm the dropouts on the Mutsu ( Broken Road ) are different. They kind of pivot but still give 20mm of rear wheel adjustment. Loads of clearance with 650b 2.8 tyres and same with 29er 2.4 Forekasters. Ignore my post further up- after saying I was going for a broken road the Mutsu was too tempting and I’ve built it up to my spec. Singlespeed at the mo but the dropout bolts are made of cheese and I’m worried about giving them too much torque so I keep pulling the back wheel off centre. Ordered some proper bolts and knocked up a couple of chain tugs, all good now. My first 650b and first plus tyres. Grip is brilliant but mud is a bit scary!!.Posted 3 months ago
16mm length. Fast delivery.Posted 3 months ago
Are there mounts to easily fit a full length mudguard on the back? I know there’s rack mounts at dropout and at top of seat stays, but no mention of bolt holes at seatstay bridge or chainstay bridge/BB area.Posted 2 months ago
Bike is really good. I think I’ve got it sorted to my liking.Just put a Rekon+ 2.8 on front to replace ranger 2.8. Loads better in mud with 10psi.I can confirm it has bolt holes on seat stay bridge and on chain stay bridge too. Rear wheel slip I was getting single speed has been rectified with a couple of chain tugs.Posted 2 months ago
Thanks for the info re mudguard fixings @teamslug. If I go for it, I’ll be making full use of those.
What chaintugs did you manage to fit? Total lack of detailed photos of the frame so hard to figure out what could be used. Not saying I’ll SS mine, but current bike had horizontal dropouts and I had slippage using gears before fitting chaintugs.Posted 2 months ago
Jonny RM. They aren’t conventional horizontal ones. They are pivotal but still have 20mm if forward/rear movement. Only problem I’ve had is that the rear wheel pulls sideways. I’ve made some chaintugs and its fine now. From memory I don’t think you are too far from me. PM me if you want to come and have a look.Posted 2 months ago
Freshly built at the weekend and straight into daily use. Only issue during the build was non-existant chainstay clearance for the 36t-46t rings on non-Boost cranks I planned to fit, so I’ve changed to 1x setup. Needs a longer rear hose as Mutsu wheelbase is 15cm greater than my previous bike, so current routing is less than optimal.
Set up: 490mm a-c Exotic carbon fork, 700×47 on Hope Five20 wheelset, 180/160 SLX discs and 1×10. Currently using a 38t in outer ring position and have a 42-11t HG500 cassette ordered. SKS Edge mudguards with a bodged mounting solution on the fork. 100mm stem might swap for shorter but it’s what I had spare, and still playing around with stack height.
First ride impressions. Lack of front mech and more rigid mudguards meant zero (complete lack of) rattle even on the roughest local trails I use regularly. Flap required on front mudguard. Generally more confidence-inspiring descending / less twitchy. But could be all New Bike Feeling so will reserve further judgement for the moment.Posted 2 months ago
