    A sad end. I still get a lot of riding enjoyment out of my Switchblade.

    And I continue to love my MotoLite, which was sagely recommended by the congnoscenti at MBA. But I need bushings for it. Know where I can find ’em?

    When I lived in Tempe, Arizona, I found out about Titus Bicycle through a neighbor and Titus MTB owner. I pitched the idea of writing a story about Titus to the Arizona Republic newspaper.
    When I met Chris Cocalis he struck me as a very nice, and down – to – earth person who knew a great deal about custom – made mountain bikes. When he told me what it took to start his company (he started small while attending Arizona State University) I developed an immediate respect for him. Following the interview, I walked away and develo[ped a strong desire to own a Titus MTB. It was a fun story to write, and the complete story ran in the newspaper’s feature section.
    I am sorry to hear about the demise of Titus bicycles. I am glad, though, Cocalis started his new venture, Pivot Cycles.
    Good luck, Chris Cocalis
