  1. What are your general thoughts on weight savings by moving from a traditional steel-frame randonneur with touring wheels, to a titanium frame with hyd/disc wheels? I’m sure the weight savings must be greater with a carbon frame, but I just don’t trust carbon for longevity and durability when traveling far from home…

    1. Hi JD,

      You may save a pound on frame weight versus most steel frames? It depends on so many factors… barring a project lightweight gravel bike I am building at the moment, which uses a carbon frame, Titanium is always my go to choice. Titanium is resilient, it offers excellent ride quality and it doesn’t rust.

      Good luck!
