    BTW, you're forgetting one very important option for finding the bike you want, the used market. "Forever frames" are often available used in great condition and as you pointed out, the surface finish can be quickly and easily restored to make it look like new.

    One more quick point, a really light Ti frame is likely to have some flex to it, so don't automatically reject those models when searching.
    A really light titanium frame is likely to have some flex if it's not built to be stiff, or if the rider is too heavy.
