I'm new to biking.

But I would give a good bit of extra weight to having personally checked the bike out.

I've never owned a titanium bike.

But I think titanium is not a perfect solution, any more than carbon. I have used titanium in other fields.

Maybe I'm prejudiced, but I bought Carbon.

Look at is this way - what % of new models are Ti? Doesn't that limit your market resale value also? How many people are buying titanium? How many Carbon?

If titanium was the greatest thing since grits you would see a lot more of them out there.
