Hi,

Thought maybe a 40 year old semi-noob could get some help on here. I am looking to upgrade from my steel touring bike to something faster..either titanium or carbon. I like the ride of both with maybe the carbon as a slight preference. I am puzzled by the dueling mantras by the bike makers. Carbon makers insist that their material is best and I agree with that with regards to ride quality, but the titanium guys all spout that carbon bikes "wear" out after 5 to 6 years and that durability is an issue. I heard quite a few opinions at the shops but thought I'd get a more impartial view before I put down 4 to 6k.

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
