If I was to try to imagine, the ultimate post that a guy who liked budget titanium would make, this would be it.

You all missed the most important point. What is your average speed?

When it comes to disc braking systems, there are four parts you need to know:

The pads, rotors, calipers, and hardware. The system is responsible for... well, braking. However, as with any other component within your vehicle, each aspect of the braking system serves a different purpose.

The primary purpose of 2-piece rotors is to reduce unsprung and overall vehicle weight. This is accomplished by using two-piece disc construction. ... The secondary purpose is to increase the ventilation and cooling capacity of the brake disc. Better airflow means better cooling and less fade.

I've only ridden a handful of bikes with disc brakes. Every one braked better and smoother than my rim braked bikes.

Maybe not high end titanium but I own a Habanero and no issues with the welds, everything was done well and the owner is super nice. I make no claims for the website, it is decidedly old school 90s era Angelcities.
Sure would I rather have a Firefly, Moots, Seven, No.22, Ren, IF, Black Sheep, Engin...or other U.S. made Ti sure without a doubt but my Habanero is a solid bike and was a perfect bike for this build. (saddle was adjusted in post just threw it on to finish up the bike and get it back home didn't realize until we were chatting about it at the shop that it wasn't level) Cheap poorly welded titanium is always bad but this hasn't been the case here.
