Yes that pub might have been gay I can't remember for sure but my wife would have been with me so no big deal. ;) One of my pals from San Jose used to be a pro bicycle racer and he swore he would never have any but steel frames ever because of catastrophic frame failures one of titanium and one of aluminum that both put him in hospital. Steel has forgiving failure modes. We used to work with nitinol alloys but mostly used stainless for medical devices. I am inclined to agree with Joe based on my work over the years. I am now retired and have not rode bikes for some but have a wonderful old Raleigh 3 speed fully chrome plated.
