    Clydes on Ti?

    How many of you Clydes ride titanium frames? If so let's see what you have.

    I don't currently, but a titantium frame for my V-Rex (making a 'Ti-Rex') is on my 'wishlist' after I acquire a Rans X-Stream in a year or two. That would reduce my V-Rex from ~30 lbs to under 25 with careful selection of parts. There's no reason why Clydes/Athenas can't ride Ti.

    My junker (purchased used.. used for short trips and when I'll be locking up the bike along time)

    An old merlin road.. Now I personally wouldnt' ride an xtralite version of the frame but I'm chicken. Nothing to do with Ti because I won't ride steel/alum/carbon frames with low weight limits either.
