    If someone has ridden both the Colnago C40 and the Titanio (monotube
    titanium) frames, I'd be interested in their comments in ride quality,
    handling, comfort, etc.

    I've spent a couple of years on a C40 and find it to be an awesome frame.
    Light, responsive, very comfortable, not at all "woody" like some people
    complain about carbon frames.

    Now I have the opportunity to pick up a Titanio and I'm curious about the
    different in ride quality. I'm mostly a sport rider, although I race
    occasionally (Cat 4). Couple of centuries a year.

    This will likely not be an either/or proposition, I'm just wondering how the
    frames will compare.

    I was going to build a Dream for racing, but then this Titanio came may be both my race bike and my back up everyday bike...

    Comments appreciated.
