I'm starting over fresh today. New training plan, new focus..I'm moving on from my extremely disappointing weekend and happy about it! 24 hour Nationals is the short term focus and I'm finally ready to dedicate myself to training for it. Maybe everything had to come crashing down..literally..to shake me out of whatever physical and mental funk I've been in lately.

Work related..I've got another project I'm working on..and really excited about that, too. Hopefully, I can announce something on that one later this summer.

Sorry again about your crash and missing out on Lumberjack. Hopefully, that doesn't reflect badly on all of us here in Michigan!
Question: How do you like the new ti frame? Compared to the Jabberwocky, is it stiffer ride or similar? I have a On-One and am looking to upgrade my singlespeed 29er to either the Jabberwocky or Optimus. I like the ride of my steel frame but wondering if weight savings is the only issue to consider Ti?
I would appreciate a first hand review if you can.

I like the ti because 1) it's lighter and 2) it rides a bit smoother..soaks up bumps nicely without being flexy. Both these things are really nice..especially for endurance type riding. Still, you can't go wrong with steel if you don't want to spend the extra $ for ti. Hope that helps?

Lighter and smoother are very good upgrades! I am running a rigid fork (White carbon) so I need some flex in the frame. Pushing less weight uphill is a positive for old guys like me too!
I am going to see if the local distributor here can get the ti frame first and then decide.
Thanks again for the quick response.
Good luck at Nationals!
