Question for Lemond Ti-Carbon/Steel-Carbon owners

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Question for Lemond Ti-Carbon/Steel-Carbon owners

Got a question for owners of titanium-carbon and steel-carbon bikes. How is the ride (in particular the pedaling stiffness/acceleration action) compared to the all steel or AC-DC frames? I like the feel of my Alpe D'Huez, but even on that bike I notice a tad bit of flex in the BB when pedaling real hard in a high gear.

Does the frame's design of carbon on top, steel/titanium on the bottom make a huge diff.? Did they choose properly (where to put carbon)?
