My first Titanium bike was the STX RC version of this, Superb fun, though top tube was a little short.

Nicely done finding that catalogue; I haven't seen that for ages :-)
I still have my Torus frameset, and it is an excellent piece of kit. I do wish I could find some of those direct control forks though...
btw, Longun; that may have been me you saw in Plymouth. Sorry... Depends when that was. I'm not much of a 'lad' any more, but I've had 2 Torus's since '94 (I bent the first one...).

I have a perfect pair.
I fitted a pair of team SID's so I took them of my Torus XT Frame some time ago. The X-Lite forks have new bearings. They are Timken taper bearings and far better than the normal headset bearings.
I also have the x-Lite detailed diagrams and could scan them if you are interested. They are a very technical bit of kit and you should follow the instructions to fit but its easy. I live on the Wirral. Do you know what the warranty is on the Torus frame. mine has developed a crack round the seat tube. I found them fantastic on technical off-road and any type of road. far better than the team-SID apart from very fast rocky descents. let me know if you are interested.

In buying them :lol:
Yes indeedy
But i cant see any reason why your frame cant be repaired :? ,that stuff on the end of the tubes is called 'weld'
There is no reason in the world that re welded ti would fail.Its like saying the welding nowadays is of lesser quality and or strength.
Find a company the specializes in welding tubing,they will have the kit and experience needed,and if its a small weld/repair i cant really see it costing the earth :?
As to any warranty,llifetime or otherwise.I not sure Raleigh would be in any position to warranty the frame.
Sorry i dont know how long the torus had in warranty :oops:
