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.

Good luck! I think you'll like the results.

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?
