I've been scouring the site for info on the Titanium WTB Phoenix, and have found very little.

First Flight has some info under the WTB history page, but not much. The catalog scan over on the german site is barely legible...I was able to read some of it, but if someone has a better scan, that would be great.

I'd love to hear from owners or people with a good knowledge, or at least point me in ther ight direction.

Pics are always welcome :D

Thanks!

What do you want to know? FFYI, there is a huge thread on MTBR VRC on the Phoenix.

Here's mine. (I'm waiting on Potts to make me a Type II fork to complete the build.)

Thanks!
that's nice looking. What's the turn around on the type II forks?

Regarding the VRC thread, could you link me :D
is it a lot of steel phoenix content? As I'm looking mostly for info on the Ti variety...right now, I'll read anything to do with it.

Thanks for the link, Uno. Might take you up on the offer from the other thread, pm me with what you had in mind for a price.

Noah, cool pic, you're affiliated with Sid's?
Since you mentioned that you see one everyday, back in that ebay thread where I stated here's something you don't see everyday, I had to get one. Now it looks like it's happening...just hope it isn't too large, as I see that everyone rides what looks to be a smaller frame with a longgg seatpost, but I understand that's the way it was sized and meant to be ridden.

Should've done a bit more research, but I had to act quick if I wanted the WTB variety.

Do you guys mind posting your sizes, specs, setups, and such?

I'm going over to the vrc to check out that thread.

The catalog is difficult to make out, (blurry); if you know of a better copy scanned somewhere, please link.

regarding the seat tube and sizing of a phoenix, I gathered that, just a bit late.
