    Looks like you'll be busy this weekend putting a bike together.

    Just transferring parts. And doing the crappy headset installation.

    Used, from fleabay. The guy that sold it was actually quite cool, the frame is very clean, scratches and dings and typical wear but def. not abused. He replaced the stainless shock pivot bolts with titanium.

    After dealing with the maintenance headaches with the i-drive frame, I really wanted a high quality, well designed horst setup (well I would've ridden a DW just as fast) and everything I hear about Titus is great. Quality to rival Ellsworth, Turner, Ventana, Intense etc.

    Are you transferring the headset, or did you get a new one?

    I really want to build a bike someday, I'm jealous.

    New headset, the one on the GT is an integrated setup, and as you can see, this frame is not.

    I got a crank bros. direct set, the all mountain one. Supposed to be as durable as a king without the cost of having your bearing say "King" on it.

    I've got a Fox Talas 32 RLC fork coming for it... and the rest is stuff coming from the GT, includes XT shifters/levers, XT fd, XTR rd, avid mechanical discs, RF Evolve XC crank... XT hubs, Mavic 221 disc rims... etc. etc.

    I was just curious how you intended to get the headset cups out of the frame if you were going to transfer them over. Obviously that won't be a problem.

    Sounds like you're going to end up with a pretty kick ass rig when you're done. When do you plan on switching everything over?

    It's fun the first time... then it's just kinda routine. If you really want to start, do a "deep clean" on your bike. Start taking stuff apart.

    That's how I learned. I had an old version of Zinn's book, no internet at the time, and I just started taking stuff apart to see how it worked and how to put it back together.

    Verry nice! Jealous here.
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.
