New Test Bike in the Office: 2010 Titus FTM Carbon

The new 2010 FTM Carbon is a beautiful looking bike.  I should know because I have spent more time admiring it from my armchair than riding it. We had a bit of snow in these parts and the trails are a tad impassable due the 22” of the white stuff getting in the way.

The FTM features a curvy monocoque carbon frame with internal cable routing, which adds to the sleek look of the bike. Titus has added a couple of stainless steel protection plates to help keep the bike looking beautiful.  A large plate is under the downtube to protect it from rock and other trail derbies and the other plate is a chain suck guard on the chainstay.

The FTM has 135mm of rear wheel travel via a custom-valved  Fox RP23 shock.  Up front we have a tapered headtube that flares from a 1 1/8” to a 1 1/2”. The fork is a Fox 32 Talas  RLC with the 15QR system and the new FIT damper.

Hopefully the weather breaks soon and I get some saddle time on this steed.

For those folks who are curious on how a carbon frame is made, checkout the Titus Facebook page for some great pictures.
