As a means of delivering products of the highest quality, Titus recently improved its quality control and production processes. These changes follow a bottom bracket height discrepancy on the El Guapo Version 3. As a result, Titus has delayed the delivery of its El Guapo 29er to ensure:
1) Our suppliers can effectively utilize a revised jigging method designed to improve production consistency;
2) We can properly monitor these improved production efforts, while ensuring that frames are constructed to proper specification.
While Titus has not experienced production flaws with its El Guapo 29er prototypes, to ensure the smoothest initial production-run, we have implemented new and improved quality control measures.
As a result, Titus forecasts a 45-60 day delay to the production run of the initial El Guapo 29ers. Under this revised timeline, production completion is slotted for the beginning of March. The earliest our customers can expect to ride an El Guapo 29er is the end of March.
Considering the buzz surrounding 650B, Titus is keen to finalize its unique take on the 29er with the El Guapo. We believe that our newest addition to the fleet is testament to the fact that Titus supports products just as contemporary as the rest of the industry. As thanks for your understanding, Titus will offer its customers an attractive pre-order coupled with speedy delivery via air freight.
Thank you for your interest and patience,
-Titus Cycles Development Team
In other news, Titus is currently testing DSP Racing’s Dueler shocks for possible OE fitment to our frames. The initial feedback is very promising.
