You are a crazy geek, oops, I meant Greek! j/k.
Ti frames are very nice, don't get me wrong, but they are more suited to XC type riding. Why? I dunno, probably because they are SOOOOO damn expensive, that if you cased a jump and snapped the frame it would make you cry, moreso, than if you snapped a chromoly frame let's say.
The Only Ti FR that I can think of is no longer being made. I'm sure there are more out there, and obviously the custom route. I remember Litespeed had a FR hardtail called the "Kitsuma" named after a fun trail in North Carolina.
The Cove is still even more of a XC frame.
What's your budget? Are you looking for just a frame, or a complete bike?
What style of riding are you getting into these days? Still aggro XC, or more Racing XC?
