So I bought one today road bike Team issue 58 cm. Riding carbon last 8 years and steel before that. I am hoping to catch the steel road ride that is an upgrade. The carbon bike is fine but seems 2 carbons are same thing, so give the TI a ride.

Anyone think this could be nuts? I do but hey.....

Nope, not nuts, I don't think. I've been watching CL for one.

What's a Delphi Fracker? A chain snaplink or special
handlebar plug or an SUV repellant spray?

Andrew - what do you think of anti-sieze in a bottom bracket?

For threads or press-in against titanium it's standard
practice and highly recommended.

"in" a BB, used as a lubricant for bearings? That's dumb,
don't do it.

If you think that is nuts I'm completely crazy having a CF, Ti and Alu roadbike. You will discover that Ti doesn't have magic riding qualities. It just doesn't need a paintjob and stays like new forever. Don't put parts on it that can rust. That would be strange.

I don't expect it to have magic riding qualities but hoping it will be even soother than my CF. I remember my old steel Schwinn Traveler fro about 1991 was aqua green. Frankly road pretty good much better than any Al bike. Not as cutting fast and nimble as my CF but not harsh.

The whole Ti frame is different in Geometry so I wonder how that will be.
