Oversize the down tube of Lynskey bikes, made for touring of titanium were positively huge.. *

Aluminum, in order to not flex and possibly crack from that flexing is also made in larger tube sizes
and thanks to hydroforming , aluminum gets increased shapes to meet the stresses of that joint.

Titanium can be made in to special shapes , but that gets expensive..


Got the dosh, chat them up https://lynskeyperformance.com/

* I see some pretty nice bikes , that people buy and go touring upon, bring on the OR coast , a destination.

where people come from around the country and globe to enjoy the coast road,
or begin or end their transcontinental tours...
