Reynolds seamless 6/4 titanium?
Does anyone know about this material? Does it have any disadvantages over high quality 3/2.5?
Also, on this website
there is some information, including this information about Reynolds 953: "High tensile/impact strength and fracture toughness...."
I wonder how the Reynolds 6/4 titanium tubing compares in this regard.
(Someone once told me that titanium does not do as well as some steels when it comes to sharp impacts -- that problem areas can develop in the titanium (crack propagation?). I didn't get details, and don't know if that fellow really knew; but it would be interesting to find out more about this.)
1 disadvantage: it's more expensive
1 advantage: it's a lighter tubeset
1 disadvantage: lighter tubeset means it's drawn thinner, to me, that's not good, but if it's not being ridden by a 250 lb. guy in a CX race, it shouldn't be a problem, right?
