The Racer X is finally 100% complete! FedEx delivered the seatpost today and I put it on, it looks great. I love this bike and I can’t wait to take it out! Too bad it’s still snowing outside with huge gusts of wind… It looks like a winter tundra out there. I can’t wait for Spring to get here!


I’m just about done building up my Titus Racer X frame.  I was able to swap almost everything over from my old hardtail to my new frame, with the exception of the headset and the seatpost.  My advice to anyone looking to upgrade components or just plain don’t have any, to go to one of the following sites to start your search.


I’ve had great experiences with each site.  And if you aren’t exactly sure what components you want for your bike then check out these sites for reviews.

  1. Anything to do with moutain bikes.
  2. Anything to do with road bikes.

I had a new Sunlite Headset sitting around that came with my Marzocchi fork that worked with my Racer X frame and it seems to be very solid, I’ll let you know how I like it after a few rides.  I’m a big fan of Race Face components as I’ve had stems, handlebars, and seatposts made by them.  All of which are affordable, well made, and look great.  So I’ll be ordering this seatpost from JensonUSA, Race Face Ride XC Seatpost ’09.  It’s a solid seatpost that I’ve used before and it takes a good beating and keeps on going, perfect for my style of riding.  The only reason why I have to buy another one is because the Racer X seatpost diameter is 31.6mm and the Race Face seatpost I have is 30.9mm.
