i'm looking to get a titanium frame but don't want a noodle. I have read that the Dean el diente has large down tubes and stays so i figure this would stiffen things up over lesser diameter tubes.
does anyone have experience or knowledge on this compared to other ti frames?
thanx

I have a Dean Ti frame sold under the brand Ionic. It's a 2001(?) model, but is very much like the current design of Dean frames today. The down tube is fatter tha the rest of the tubes and with a Weyless full carbon fork and Velomax wheels the ride is very nice.

Don't have experience with other Ti frames, but I can't find a complaint with this one.
