I am about to make a significant purchase on a Serotta bicycle. I am a petite female, 5'2", 120 lbs. I ride about 3-4 times a week, enjoy doing centuries and other non-competitive rides. I ride on average about 125 miles a week.
I just got back from being fitted for a Serotta (which was wonderful) but now need to pick from purchasing a Titanium vs. Steel frame. The price differential is about $1000. We are talking $4,800 vs $3,800 for titanium vs steel. What are your thoughts, is the ride of titanium worth the extra cost?
