Titus Fireline Ti 29 Evo..
Now that’s an coincidence! I’m been having the same issue ever since I bought a nice Thomson Elite silver finished post for my Ti456E. Looks like I’m not the only one then.
The clicking can be resolved with a good application of anti-seize to the post, but that will probably result in slippage. In fact, I’d be surprised if the clicking wasn’t the sound of the post gradually working it’s way into the frame. That’s certainly what was happening with mine.
So while anti-seize will solve the noise, but it’ll make the slippage worse. I’m using a Hope QR, and it’s ‘hope-less’ at holding the seatpost in place. I’ve ordered a Thomson non-QR clamp in an attempt to resolve this.
It’s worth pointing out that my SDG i-beam seatpost never slipped or clicked in the same frame.

Yep my seat tube is baggy. Brand new Reverb dropped right down with little resistance. Carbon paste and a bit extra on the bolted clamp worked for me.
Brant if you’re looking in I’ll have the frame to you by the end of the week. It’s dismantled so I just need to “build” a box.Posted 4 years ago
Couple of good runs with the Thomson seat clamp now. Movement on the first run, but tightened up a bit more (though not straining the bolt), and everything stayed in place. Fairly big ride with fast, long, off-road descents but the post didn’t shift.
The Thomson clamp goes beautifully with the Ti frame incidently. It’s gorgeous!Posted 4 years ago
Well, it arrived a couple of weeks ago 😀
16″ and a smidge under 25lbs as is.
Arrived without a head tube badge or decals, but On One sent them out shortly afterwards. Not sure I’m going to use the decals to be honest, like it the way it is.
I’ve had it a couple of weeks now for a good shakedown and chance to form some thoughts on the bike. First impressions are that it ticks exactly the boxes I was looking for, i.e. a 29er 456. Was swithering between a 16″ or an 18″ and went for the 16″ with a 50mm stem in the end with no regrets. Climbs really nicely and seems really planted on the descents, more importantly it just seems to fly everywhere.
Very happy with it 8)Posted 4 years agorobgclarksonMemberornitorincusMember
I have an Inbred 29er, wich I’m enjoying quite a lot, but I would like to go for something a little bit more “gravitty” oriented. After a week enjoying a Chromag Surface, the concept of big wheels with long forks has really conquered my heart, and this Titus Fireline seems to tick all the boxes, but I have a major doubt, regarding size.
My inbred is size 19,5, and it fits me very well, but I wouldn’t like to go much bigger than this. So the question is… anyone of you have tried an Inbred 29er? Did you use the same size in both bikes? Size 20″ would be the logical choice for me, but I’m afraid it might be a little bit too long.
This is my inbred:
Thanks a lot for your help!Posted 4 years ago
