    He has also ridden a Pinarello during his Fassa Bortolo days. I believe his Marvel showed up on ebay once. Ti isn't dead. And yes this story has floated around. I saw something similar on podiumcafe.

    Ti(and steel) are far from 'dead' Both are great materials, last a long time, look great and ride great. Just the 'big boys(and many small boys) are awash with the extremely marketed material of today-carbon.

    I meant to say dead amongst the pro's. I'm sure carbon makes for a great frame, but I'm still having fun on my aluminum and steel bikes.

    Careful on materials. Take a look on line at some of the frames used for the classics season. Not all of that stuff is carbon...

    A few Scandium offerings out there, but they are becoming fewer and fewer each year.

    Occasionally you will even find steel frames. IIRC Ballan raced on a one-off steel Wilier for the classics season 2~3 years ago...
