Titanium Bicycle Frames
Compared to a steel frame, a titanium bicycle frame of the same dimensions would have a "whippy feel" because it would be less stiff. This might be more noticeable in a bicycle carrying a heavy load. However, titanium frames are made with larger diameter tubes in order to compensate for this effect.

While generally considered costly, titanium bicycle frames are widely considered to be the most durable.


While frames are the most common bicycle part that can be made from titanium, main tubes, handlebars, stem, axles, saddle rails, pedals, chainset, chain, and rim, hub, and spokes of the wheels can also be made from titanium. Such titanium bicycles are far too expensive to be attractive for hobby bicycling, they remain a specialty for high-level races. Titanium Frame Manufacturers and Retailers
