Does sweat corrode or pit titanium. I am looking at a habanero road frame to replace my gt zr2.0. It is slightly bubbled in the paint job and was looking at a ti framset with no paint. Also will it be as stiff? I weigh in at 250 and prefer a stiff frame with no flex.

Lastly, will a set of velomax circuit last under my weight?

Thanks for the input.

If you want a stiff frame with no flex get oversized AL or steel...forget most TI bikes.

The Habs are made out of straight-gauge titanium 3.2 ti. I'm betting yours will be right stiff.

Happy Hab owner here,
