OK, you've all discussed the relative merits of steel and carbon and where to save weight - but what about Titanium? The advantages of Steel (resiliance, repairable, long-lasting) and some of the advantages of Carbon (weight - not as light as carbon but lighter than steel, stiffness possibly). I've never ridden a Titanium bike but I know a lot of people who swear by them.
If anyone wants to sub me I'll do a comparison test over the next 5 years for you
Never ridden a Ti bike but would love to give one a go (one of these days I will
end up owning a Raleigh Timet R800, hopefully). As for your "comparison test" idea, really you need a bigger sample than just one rider to get a conclusive result. Anyone fancy subbing me as well?
