Default Titanium

Who has a ride made with this wonder metal ? I intend it to be my next ride
( 50 cm + - & compact geometry as I prefer a low standover height) I'd love
to hear recommendations of brands models etc form anyone who has currently
or previously owned a Ti bike. TIA

What ever, your posting is multiplying a little.
For what it's worth, I prefer my titanium alloy Litespeed over my 853
steel Lemond and aluminum Lemond. None of them are compact geometry.
I'll ride the Lemonds occasionally but I keep on coming back to the
Litespeed. The steel bike is quite comfortable but feels a bit heavy
and a little sluggish. The AL bike is lighter but not as smooth
riding as the Litespeed. All the frames were used when I bought them.
The Ti frame cost twice as much as either of the other two. I
consider it well worth the additional price I paid.
