I bought this bike to accomodate my evolving style of riding: bigger hits, more airtime, larger obstacles. In that way it has eaten up what I have thrown at it. I don't huck my bike, no serious free-riding, but the bike does just fine off jumps of several feet high and steep decents. It is hard though dealing with the slightly more sluggish handling than my previous Yeti Kokopelli (XC geometry) and have initially (1 month) found myself rolling a little too far outside some corners. But perhaps it is not so much the poorer handling as it is my newfound confidence and stability down the hills that causes higher speeds, and in turn (pun intended), demands more finesse. Not sure yet. Either way, I am happy. The Titus ML is a fantastic bike, and although I am still in the honey moon stage, I think I might just I love her.
