The Titan has been near the top of my frame dream/wishlist for a while, and your comments about mulleting it boost that. I've run my Instinct BC with a 27.5 rear wheel, using a Ride9 link to correct the geo, and was similarly blown away by the cornering and poppiness. (If my 27.5 rear wheel wasn't terrible, I'd keep it like that.) Another big selling feature is that your use of a 28t chainring didn't seem to affect the suspension performance. My preference is definitely for the shorter derailleurs, lighter cassettes, and - in my experience - much better reliability of 11 speed, with a 10-42 cassette. But I still like that 28/42 low gear. I really wish more frames didn't make using a 28t such a compromise.
