    Yeti 575 vs Titus Moto-lite

    I need some help in choosing a new trail bike. It's between a Yeti 575 enduro kit, or a custom Titus Moto-lite. I've demo'd them both, but that only added to my confusion. The 575 felt better 'out of the box', but I took that bike on a more technical trail and got a better feel for than the Titus. I like the idea of getting a custom build, and being able to choose all of my components, though the Yeti is nicely spec'd.

    They both get great reviews, and seem to be pretty comparable in terms of their trail-worthiness.

    Thanks for any thoughts!

    Iv'e heard good things about the Yeti. I was going to get one but decided on a "true" 6 inch travel bike instead. The Yeti is only 5.75(duh) in back and 5 up front. The bike I already have is 4.5 in back and 5 in front, so it pretty much was the same as what I have.

    You can't go wrong with a Yeti. And that 'missing' 1/4" should be a non-issue if it goes the way my ASX has. It only has 7 1/2" but behaves like 8+. I would love to have a 575 to round out my 'fleet.'

    If you feel it better, take the Yeti. After all, the feel of the frame is most important, the components you can always change

    I've been lusting over those same two bikes . The Titus is a great bike , I test rode a friends for a couple of days . It felt like a longer travel version of my beloved Jamis Dakar frame . From looking at the website it seems that they only custom build the Moto-Lite frame if you are getting the Excogrid model and not the aluminum one . On the other hand , the Yeti 575 (in turquoise , of course) would look real sweet next to my 13 year old Yeti ARC(if my folks ever ship it to me) . Flip a coin , I don't think you could go wrong with either bike .
