Titusrider – interesting article but I don’t see this making much difference to the cost of ti bike frames. I used to work in the metals industry and a new cheaper refining technology will alter the margins that refiners are able to earn but this is unlikely to tempt new production to come on stream, increasing supply and lowering price. Also (I could be talking out my aris here) I think some of the cost of ti frames is down to the fact that the material is quite difficult to work with.Posted 5 years ago
