Thanks very much for doing this, but it appears that's not my bike. So do I not have a Titan Pro then?? :?

Regarding the non matching maguras, strip and spray! Nice and easy, and they are small enough with complex enough surface to be able to spray without being a master at the art.

it's funny coz this one says Muddy Fox Titam Pro (although decals aren't original) and this appears to be the same as my frame:

The article does say it's a prototype. Perhaps once the bean counters got involved, some alterations were made to the marketed version?

always possible, but would the changes be that radical?

Who knows? Perhaps this is a fairly generic Ti frame that Boris was able to knock up for less. I guess not having the wishbone seatstay would say a few quid.

I agree it's all a bit odd though, the design in the article is comparable to the design of the steel Fox's (the one that looked like it shared a frame with early Orange Clockworks).
