I am going to eventually upgrade to a more modern bike---probably before this year is over. I have an 80's Univega Gran Premio with a steel frame and downtube shifters. It is a good bike and I have enjoyed it a lot---but want to experience some of the newer technology. I have watched DG's struggle with great interest. What are some of your thoughts about titanium frames vs carbon frames. Seems like titanium would stand up a bit longer than carbon in a fall or other type accident. If carbon breaks you are looking for a new bike. Is titanium too expensive?
Any thoughts or experience?
