Titus

Here's one that hasn't been represented yet. Although clicking "New Posts" got me into a road bike thread and I don't know if Titus ever made road bikes.

I am following your threads regarding your R260. I finally have my R260 frame, wheels, etc and am "patiently" waiting for the bike build here locally.

Well, I hope so. Maybe it's more of a hybrid or mixte....since they're a one-shape-for-all design.

So far so good. I've really only been back on the bike four or five times...gradually increasing distance, and effort. After not riding for about three months total, including pre- and post-op time, I found that my legs lost a bit of conditioning...and consequently there's a bit of general soreness after each ride. Also noticeable is a bit of weakness on the surgical side when climbing...especially if out of the saddle. So, I haven't really been "attacking" hills and instead just kind of riding up them at an easier pace for now.

Shouldn't the plural be titania?

Nice. I sold mine (came from my dad) a couple of years ago. Never rode it and it was a tad too tall.

1989 Spectrum titanium that my dad ordered brand new. Started it's life as a 7 spd, downtube shifting Campagnolo equipped bike. Now it's an 8 spd with Campagnolo ergo shifters. I love riding the bike (it's probably got well over 20k miles on it) but, again, it's a tad on the tall side so I'll be giving it to my brother next month and will revert back to the remainder of my C&V fleet. The photo stinks but was taken after installing a Suntour Sprint crankset to replace the lightweight Sampson that had cracks on the crank arms.

With a lot of elbow grease, the lynskey titanium seatpost and stem would match the polished frame

Just bought a Lynskey XC bike today (brushed finish for easier scratch repair) to fight the malaise brought on by a nearly windless first half of the sailing season and the state of national politics...oh yeah, and for my 62nd birthday. I'll post up if it lowers my depression scores.

Hey I'm happy for you, @MoAlpha, and you have plenty of good reasons. Let us know how you find the bike. I'm sure I'd love one of those.

Thank you, Sir; will do. And my eccentric, eurotrash, dad would have agreed with you about "titania" because he insisted on using "agendum" and "visum" correctly, but also occasionally ordered a "martinus."

Visum? I don't think that's correct, since it looks like a verb, not a noun, but it is funny. I hadn't thought about martini, and perhaps the singular should be martino, if it has Italian roots.

I also use medium for one and media for plural.

I’m no latin expert, but I believe “visa” refers those papers which are to be seen by officials of the country one visits and the singular would “visum.” As for “martino,” you have to be right. And, yes, medium, datum, and so forth.
