Were there any titanium-frame bikes disasters to avoid?
I'm still riding and loving my GT Xizang, a titanium-framed hardtail mountain bike, that I bought new back in 1995. She was made in the USA (Longmont, Colorado I believe).
I'm super happy with her, and hear stories all the time about what a great bike the Xizangs were. So I'm wondering: are there any exceptions to the general rule that titanium bikes, though more expensive, are always better bikes? Did someone screw up and sell a really crummy titanium bicycle? If so, WHO???
