I am new to this forum and am looking at getting a gravel bike. To date I have been racing mostly on road with a Canyon CF Slx 9.0 from 2014. The frame is a size M and has the dimension as per the attached screenshot. Currently, I am intrigued by the idea of getting a titanium frame. My budget for the entire bike set-up is approx 5.000 USD. My preferred set-up would be Sram Force 1, but I am open for alternatives. Intended use would be occasional gravel race, base riding in the winter and self-supported bike touring. Bike can have a more aggressive / racy position. I have looked into the producers under the following link: https://off.road.cc/content/feature/the-best-titanium-gravel-and-adventure-bikes-on-sale
Do you have any experience / recommend any? Honestly, I find the Moots Rouut 45 most compelling, but it is out of my price range.
Lastly, do you see such a bike advantage of titanium over carbon fibre with regards to durability?
Look forward to your responses,
