- Titus Fireline Ti 29 Evo..
I’m 6’0″ I run a Medium giant XTC29 (which i think is perfect sizing). I bought an XL Yelli which was too large. I had a Large MEta which whist it felt BIG, it wasn’t ridiculous, i had a Medium Bionicon Supershutle which felt too small on 99% of riding.
Am 5’10.5″ and rode a 16″ 456 Ti. Prefer running short stem / wide bars for larking about in the woods type riding. What do you think?

a progressive trail hardtail designed for tough fun trail riding … It just flat hammers, flatters and eats up the terrain like nothing else.
… which is pretty much what I’m looking for at the moment (nice copywriting skills Brant)
tho I’m not clear “progressive” and “without looping out on climbs or “tri bike” like seating positions” mean … anyone?Posted 6 years agobigdugsbawsMember

It means we could have followed the masses and gone even shorter at the back end, but made handling suffer – or we could have pitched you forward to counteract that, but we didn’t.
Progressive means it’s contemporary with new rims, tyres and forks that are arriving on the scene.Posted 6 years agoClinkSubscriber

Interested in your thoughts on this. I’ve ridden Canfield Yelli Screamy and Nimble 9, 2 Souls Slim Jim all with chainstays between 16.3 and 16.7″ ish. Admittedly all set up 1×9 or 1×10, but I thought (in my ltd experience) the handling was spot on with all 3.
In your opinion how does the handling suffer? Is it seated climbing or not stable enough going down, for example?Posted 6 years ago
