Depends what you are looking for. ti is hard to beat for sheer longevity, but most people get bored with a bike and get rid of it.

I'm going for magnesium this year :twisted:

hey man, I tend to keep bikes longer than most people around here, my main road bike I've been racing for 6 years now. (oh, and I sold a titanium bike to get this one since it didn't fit me right)

The bike the mag one is replacing is a glued and screwed aluminum one. ;)
