My fave is Ritchey. Bike racer, a major designer of the ht mtb, designer of some of the first parts able to withstand mtb race conditions, one of the best mtb frame welders on earth.
His beefy mtb line is called 'Severe condition.' Has 3 other levels of component 'strenght'. Does fancy road gear too.
My choice for frame material is Cromo-steel. Rides well, takes a hit, can be repaired. Ti is out of my price range,....and I'm not shure I really need a Ti frame.
A HQ Chromo takes me everywhere I want to go, does everything I need.
My bike has a 14 year old Ritchey Logic headset that WORKS. Only reason I have not pulled it and got a new one....... The stupid old thing works just fine.
Kinda WISH it would grind so I could replace it with some shiny new.
I'd slap most any Ritchey component on my bike, he makes it all.
