Bike Profile - 2009 Titus El Guapo

The snow was a little deeper than I thought...

I haven't been very kind to this bike.  It's been rode hard, put away wet and tossed off a cliff in a fit of depression/frustration.  It deserves better.

In late 2008, Titus released the revamped EG to enthusiastic response from Titus fans and just about everybody else.  It was designed to hit the 6" sweet spot, what marketing teams were calling "All Mountain".  Described as climbing well and descending even better, it looked like the ideal frame to make up for my lack of riding skill.

Keeping it Positive
Things have kinda sucked lately, and driver aggression against cyclists seems to be rising in Calgary.  It could also be my imagination.  The driver aggression part, not the things kinda sucking lately part.  I went for a ride around Glenmore Reservoir after work.  All the people I encountered were pleasant and friendly.  It made me feel good to be in contact with these people.  I stopped at Safeway on the way back, and made chili when I got home.  Chili is good.
