Durability, probably my driving reason for going titanium in the first place. My old 531c steel frame as wonderful as it was developed a crack around the bottom bracket. Damn near broke my heart. I am from the abdoujaparov school of bike riding. If i stay on for the whole ride it is classed as a miracle.
However just going titanium in this day and age doesn't guarantee that durability. Build, weld quality and craftsmanship should all be considered.
After all there are factories in korea and china throwing out titanium frames for various manufacturers and whilst they are titanium the lifespan is only really comparable to top end aluminium frames I suppose this is the disadvantage of mass production. All in all they aren't actually bad frames, but why go titanium like this when you can have top end aluminium?
The real beauty of having a titanium frame made by specialists is the quality of the build, attention to detail and overall quality, which when all blended together should deliver that "frame for life"
The beauty of going titanium with moots is the wow factor and that aura that surrounds the name as well as being beautifully engineered machines. Rather like Ferrari in motor cars. But that is just my ego talking.
