One of the benefits of a Ti bike is its long term durability and the fact that if you buy a frame that fits you well it is likely you will be riding it for well over a decade. Even if crashed it can often be repaired rather than some of the disposable frames of late made from aluminum or carbon.tonkabaydog said:Do Carbon Fiber seat stays and chainstays on Ti bike smooth the ride out... or is it marketing hype?
Well with that statement you pretty well blew any credibility with the rest of your comments.Christoph said:If you want a "race" bike, then buy a carbon bike...
Whatever my clumsy wording above, the Moots RSL kind of proves my point. Great, I dare say probably a fabulous bike, and all titanium. Race-able I'm sure, and no need to create a frankenbeast carbon/titanium combo frame.gearguywb said:I will be sure and let the Moots guys know that the RSL can not stand up to a carbon 'race" bike
It's not about the material, rather the application.
