    You may want to re-phrase your question. Street, race, flatland, or freestyle?

    I think that Redline makes a superlight Titanium frame that is only like 2.8 Pounds or some thing but it costs 500 dollars. Unless your rich i'd get a S&M Dirt Track Frame.

    It's a joke! We used titanium as much as possible on the tandem. The only place we used CF was the headset spacers.

    It's actually an inanimate object, therefore it cannot be stupid. What's your excuse?
