And there i was thinking it was just for posers.

Also, note the lack of steel tube.

Materials choice is a balancing of the various characteristics.

gotta help next time my frame gets run over by an F250!

Nice demo, but not quite how frame tubes are stressed in application.

My sentiments exactly Jez, I thought that it was a cool way to demonstrate how tough Ti is. Does make you wonder about those carbon parts though :)

We're quoting for some Titanium jobs at work at the moment and I'm dead excited that I'll get a chance to work with it. Sad really.

I'm a CNC Machine Engineer. People give me drawings of little metal parts and I go away for a couple of days and get back to them with little metal parts. Mostly development and small batch stuff. I work here in fact...
