Titanium is the perfect material for the cycling.

Here is our customer's email:


I’m also just concerned with the inherent flex that comes with using titanium as a bike material. Can the bike be made stiff enough?


I search and reply to him:


之所以钛合金在自行车的运用很广泛,是因为钛合金的强度和抗腐蚀性很强。还是有就是,钛合金材质的车架,往往是自身的硬度是比较好,往往和钢材质一样,是很多骑长途车友的首选。


 Why the titanium materials are widely used in the bicycle industry?  because titanium strength and anti-corrosion both are very good. In addition to that, the titanium frame itself has a pretty good stiff. As well as the steel materials, so some rider first chooses titanium as their priority option.


Titanium is not only flexed but also stiffness, it  is the perfect material compare with steel and Aluminum:


Here’s a guide to finding the stiffest touring frames (if you can’t test a frame loaded with gear):

Steel
– Look for a downtube that’s 34.9mm or larger (eg. 38.1mm, 42mm or 44mm)
– Look for a top tube that’s 31.7mm or larger (eg. 34.9mm)
– Double or triple butted frame tubing

Titanium
– Look for a downtube that’s 41.5mm or larger (eg. 48mm)
– Look for a top tube that’s 34.9mm or larger (eg. 37.3mm or 38.1mm)
– Double or triple butted frame tubing

Aluminium
– Look for a downtube that’s 44mm or larger (eg. 48mm)
– Look for a top tube that’s 38mm or larger (eg. 44mm)
– Double or triple butted frame tubing
