Carbon vs Ti for TT/tri bike?
Howdy all! I'm starting to look at a TT bike for the upcoming race season. I see a lot of good deals on the bay for carbon TT/tri bikes. But I also have an eye on a Ti Litespeed blade on cl and a Ti guru on eBay. If the price were in the same ballpark for both carbon and Ti, which would you get? The carbon ones I'm eyeing are BH, Guru, and QR. the Ti ones are both '04s. I'd like to get one that isn't made in Asia, but that won't be my primary driver. The cheapest will probably be my deciding factor.
If any of you have owned both carbon and Ti tri/TT frames, what were the pros and cons of each?
