Mostly agree

Titanium rides similarly to steel, but tends to have a slightly more "whippy" feel.

Ti, like all other materials depends on design and application. It is more flexible than steel and thus the 'springy' or 'resilient' adjectives often used to describe the ride. I've certainly seen whippy titanium and also ridden titanium that is as stiff as the mega-oversized aluminum bikes.

The Lemond though had great road manners.

I just picked up a '01 Victoire frame on eBay. Paid a little more than I had hoped, but I will soon have Ti "in da house". Planning on using an Alpha Q fork, and transferring my Ultregra SL components from my '07 Alpe d'Huez frame.

Looking forward to checking out the Ti frame feel.
