Titus Drop-U porn...kamss
Apr 4, 2003 12:18 PM
well, finally finished up building my titus drop-u with a parts transplant from my ellsworth flight. here's a parts spec...
large 2000 titus drop-u frame
reynolds ozuo pro full carbon fork, king hs
dura-ace cranks, bb, f. der, shifters
ultegra cassette and r. der.
105 brakeset
ritchey wcs oversize stem, cinelli devo bar
thomson post, selle italia prolink TA saddle
sun-ringle pro elite wheels, kenda koncept tires
soon-to-be-added time impact s pedals.
first ride impression...sweet! fast, light, very responsive, handles well and it's not too harsh. frame finish is first class, with beautiful welds and a very nice ano job. fit seems great on my first ride, only 15 miles, but i'm 6'1" with a 35" inseam, and i'm running a 120mm stem. this is a great frame for all type of riders. great value too! sorry, no weight on the complete bike, but the bare frame weighed in at about 2.6 lbs.
cheers.
Are you 10 feet tall?Kristin

and a goodly amt. of drop to the bars, which is fine, good, maybe preferable(more aero position) if one has the lower back and hamstring flexibility to do so without compromising comfort or performance.
ps. very nice ride, downright lust-worthy!
wow, that's a beautygregario

I actually like the look of compact frames. But, you must be young and must have "loose" hamstrings to tolerate that much drop to your bars. I'm 6'2" as well and most folks don't make frames big enough for me so that my back isn't killing me.
wow, that's a beautydplummer

You're so right about that? I am 6'3" and that's why I hooked up with Russ Denny. Total custom frame build for 1,200.00 with a Reynolds OUZO Pro fork. Great deal, great bike and whatever color you want.
