"...just wanted to say thanks for such a wonderful machine! By the midpoint of the race [2003 RAAM] it was clear the TitanFlex had more virtues compared to my other two bikes.

Missouri was such a blast and Indiana was blurred because of the TitanFlex's capabilities [negative-splitting the course.] I spent a total of about two-thirds of the 3000 race miles on the TitanFlex."
