All the talk of Ti has me wondering...

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

it's easier to weld than it is to lug/braze.

or you could try gluing it. [araldite 2015 might be a good place to start if you're bored]
