I believe you. Personally I haven't had any problems with Ti. I don't
know anyone else who has, either, but I can't and won't argue with
your example. I wonder if the Deda design puts more stresses on the
bolts than is prudent?

Agreed. When they were big fat 7 and 8mm bolts you could
swap to Ti. Now that stem designers have come to scrawny
little 5mm bolts, Ti stem bolts are maybe not safe to ride.

Don't know but we replace the ti bolts with stainless steel all the time, on
Deda stuff.
