    Titus El Guapo 29 Frame and extras

    This is a Titus El Guapo 29" size medium aluminum frame that is in great working order. It comes with a Monarch RT3 Debonair shock, an On-One Smoothie Mixer headset, an XTR bottom bracket, a seat collar and the rear axle. It's a 142x12 non-Boost rear end and has 140mm travel. 68 head tube angle and a 73 seat tube angle. The chainstay is 460mm and the top tube is 600mm (23.6 inches.) The paint job isn't the best on this and it has chipped in a couple of spots. The chipping at the top of the seat tube happened when the seat collar was first installed. There is chipping on the non drive side from rubbing on a bike rack when I was driving to the Angel Fire/Eagle Nest area in New Mexico. BTW, this frame handled the bike park like a champ. It was more capable of handling gnarly stuff than I was. None of the chipping was/is deep enough to affect the durability of the bike. There is some other minor chipping from being ridden like it is supposed to be ridden. Basically, it's ugly but is a beast. The RT3 is in great working order and has the stickers on the non-drive side rubbed off from that trip, but has been serviced at Cycle Progression with new seals and oil when I got back from New Mexico. They said it was fine and I haven't noticed any difference. Pics are posted for full disclosure.

    This bike has a standard Horst link 4-bar rear end and with the shock climbs great and has minimal pedal bob unless you are standing up and really mashing the pedals. But then that's with the shock open, if you put it to the middle switch, that little bob goes away. The lockout is great for roads and fire road climbs. It will handle up to a 150mm fork. I rode it with a 140mm Pike and it worked out great locally and at Angel Fire.

    The bearings are fine on it, but I have an Enduro Bearing replacement set that I will throw in with it. You will have to have them installed, but I will include them as I never got around to putting them in as they weren't needed when I decided to go carbon. Replacement derailer hangers are available here. They used to be crap, but have since switched manufacturers and have a better alloy.








    More pics upon request.

    I'm willing to trade for a good 29"wheelset or a 140mm fork that is non-boost. Mojo discount on the craigslist price.
