I'm building one of each but they will be different.
The carbon has way more development into making it lively with great trail feel. Lifetime warranty.
Both hardtails. I'm looking forward to the rides.
theoretically, titanium could last 50 years. but the killer of frames is accidents. titanium vs carbon which is more accident resistant is the real Question. carbon allows fancier moldings including internal cable routing which saves anther 50grams or so. Carbon frames run about $450 from China currently, still way cheaper than Ti.
in road, aero plays much larger part than in mtn biking. Titanium frames are not aero. totally inferior to cf here. Thats why pros race heavier more aero bikes, look at the bikes where u can't draft, timetrial + triathlon.
