Welcome, I have a road titanium bike, but I am not knowledgeable enough to answer your question. Keep in mind that wheels and tires also have weight limitations. If you are a big/heavy person, you definitely want solid built wheels. There are touring titanium bikes. They are generally pretty sturdy to handle the weight and stress they have put on them.

I can tell you that I really like my titanium road, Airborne Zeppelin, light, fast, responsive and very comfortable.
