    Carbon or Ti Track Bike Frame

    Who makes a stiffer Track Frame. Basically this is about material. Calfee has "ultra stiff" tubes and Merlin has different size tubing. I understand both builders have good reputation. I weigh 250 and don't want any frame flex.

    Thank you all.

    Stiffer how? In what dimension?

    Or maybe just call Calfee and Merlin Monday morning and ask them directly?

    Calfee will be able to dial in as little or as much stiffness as you want. More so than Titanium, even though Merlin does well. You'll just get better stiffness from Calfee, especially if you go custom.
