- Titanium hardtail… talk me out of it
I’ve had a Sonder Signal Ti for about a year now and I love it. I’ve done everything from Leeds Urban Pike Park, The Dales, trail centres to bikepacking along the Northumbrian Coast. It does it all. I’ve never been stopped and asked about the frame as much since I got the Signal. I just love riding it.Posted 5 months ago
Don’t rush me!

No rush, but there’s only 4 left (one on each size). Leave it any longer and the decision will be made for you…
The best way I can describe the SodaMAX is like the SolarisMAX (but even more so).
I bought a 26er (Lynsky) Soda because I loved my Soul so much. But I really didn’t get on with that one. It was not without some trepidation that I ordered mine, but ultimately I wasn’t disappointed.
Surely Cy will give you a trade in/discount… 🤣Posted 5 months agomonty777Member
Interesting read through this thread-especially since I ordered a Sonder Signal Ti last week. I went for the NX Eagle Revelation and added a dropper post. I had been lusting after a Ti hardtail for a couple of months, went up to Hathersage last week and rode their demonstrator-job done. I have had my current Specialized FSR Competition for 20 years so don’t tend to change bikes much. Sonder give a 10 year warranty on the frame which since I am 72 this year should do me. I will let you know what I think once it arrives and I have ridden it on trails I know.Posted 1 month agoracefaceec90Member
i have a kinesis sync ti 27.5″ which is my first ever ti bike which i bought about a year and a half ago ( always wanted a ti bike )
i cannot compare it to anything else i have ridden as it was all new (to me anyhoo) new wheel size,1 x drivetrain,geometry etc.
but i do love it i have to say (unfortunately not ridden for over 2 months atm due to various things,but i cannot wait to get back out on it again).
i always pat my sync when i go downstairs and have no plans of ever getting rid of it.Posted 1 month agosolariderSubscriber
Ti hardtail, no frame furniture, wireless 1 x shifting and dropper. Super simple, back to basics. Best bike I have ever ridden and after years of trying various suspension bikes, I have returned to the classic Ti hardtail that inspired my username back in the day.

Titus Fireline ti 29er
Sized up then put a short stem and longer fork (140mm Pike) on it to decrease the head angle to about 65
Running a 1×10″ groupset (Saint/XT and Middleburn cranks), Hope brakes, Hope/Easton wheels with 2.1″ XC tyre at the back and a 2.6″ Trail Boss at the front.
Gravity Dropper seatpost.
Just a great all-round bike. Happy to do trail centre riding, bigger stuff (Lakes etc) and long distance XC (camping etc)Posted 1 month ago
Can I have one of your spare to bikes please @ scotroutes? Three is just greedy.
That’s an old photo, though I still have two of those and there’s another third one these days. I’ve pondered on a Ti fatbike frame but the Cube Nutrail I bought cheap because the parts on it would go on said Ti frame is so nice I’ve not bothered.
I should really do another line up though.
Didn’t someone have seven Ti bikes at one point?Posted 1 month agophiljuniorMember
It’ll probably crack.
Possibly newer test standards mitigate this to some degree, but it’s notioriously difficult to weld so despite great fatigue performance in the parent metal, the welds and HAZ are vulnerable to failure.
I did not have a good experience with mine (3 months until the cracking happened), keep your current frame, spend the money on a great present for your SO or some nicer parts for your current frame.Posted 1 month agomarinerMember
Had my ti Stooge for a couple of years and eventually sold it.Posted 1 month ago
Spent ages looking for something else but nothing compared so bought another.
Took it for its first ride last weekend. It was a bit muddy as they are logging up in the woods.
