Nice to see an old Ti Mega being used. I still intend putting mine back to the same spec as when I rode it in the 1991 worlds. I gave my spare Ti Mega to my dad at the end of 1992 which is still in his ownership and not riden since the day I gave it him.

If anyone knows where I could get frame transfers copied I think I have spare sets kicking around from 91 and 92.


any pics of it Tim?


When I have put it back to 1991 worlds spec I will post a photo - don't hold your breath though as spare time is at a premium at the moment - work, two boys under five and a twinshock MX bike to maintain ......... also my wife likes to see me too.

I have been thinking about this and I do not remember racing with the TI forks very often- exceptions maybe a race I did at Alexander Palace and I also recall doing an Italian Cup race in San Marino where it rained and we went from mud to a gravel track and my front wheel got clogged up as the TI forks had VERY little clearance - designed by someone who did not understand europoean conditions :roll: My 1991 bike has gold coloured rock shocks on at the moment, but my worlds spec was accutrax forks with a massive disc brake on the front. I think I was one of the very first people to race with a disc brake in XC. I do however have a pair of TI forks ...... I think ................. will check over the weekend.
