I swear it’s a perfect fit.  12/07/07
I have to reunite with the Titus before I can put any words together.08/12/2008
Despite all efforts to avoid conflict and mitigate the frequency of assaults, in the end the rider must succumb to the savage nature of his surroundings and procure himself a shiv.  I prefer the Titus Racer X. 08/29/2008
It is time to lay my sword of righteousness down and pick up my one true weapon- the fully automatic Titus Racer-X. This year in honor of sweet victory it will read “This machine kills fascists” along the top tube. 11/06/2008
I’m staring over the next few days like the unengaged battlefield, polishing the grey gun-metal of my Titus Racer X.  1/12/2011
The Titus Racer X is secreted away in the trunk of a rented Impala like a doomed starlet.1/25/2011
I have been riding the Dogboy’s spare 29’er for weeks and the Titus was headed for the dustbin of history. 10/24/2011
The Titus tracks like a laser and I jumped from wheel to wheel like a red sucker fish. 12/30/2011
I just finished cleaning the Titus stem to stern. It is beginning to show some wear and tear. I can tell we are now in the sweet zone where everything works, it fits like a pair of skinny jeans, and I can’t imagine life without this bike. This is a sure sign that it is probably in its last year before the unraveling begins. 3/12/2012
I already own the greatest modern mountain bike available, the Titus Racer X for which I am most humbly thankful. 3/15/2012
It might be time to sell the Titus. 3/19/2012
Officially de-commissioned this day, June 20, 2012.
