    I recently got a custom Seven ID8 - carbon and Ti road bike...and love it. But to ride more it would be great to co-opt my wife, who is an ok rider, but rides a hybrid. I'm thinking of a Ti bike with carbon fork and a flat bar. $1,500 to $2,000 range. Wider (28) tires. Comfortable - very - but also fast. But still very light and compatible in riding with mine. Any suggestions?

    Lucky lady :p At that price range, I can't give you much help - find some bikes you're interested in and test them out- how the bike feels is the most important, especially if comfort is a priority. It's really up to you (and of course your wife).

    Not sure if I know of any flat bar bikes (pre-made) made of Ti. I have a Giant FCR3. The FCR line are all flat bar bikes and are all comfortable. If you know how to build a bike, you might want to try that because I'm not sure if you'll find one made of Ti from the manufacturer.

    UK Ti specialist GLOBAL has a compact bike that's inexpensive and yet very good. Worth checking.
