can you recycle titanium, as in cassettes?DougSloan

I have 4 Record 10 speed ti cassettes, all trashed. I guess I let chain stretch go too long, now now of them will work with a new chain. Skip all over the place. There goes a big chunk of change.

Anyone know of there is any use for these or if anyone recycles titanium? The stuff must be worth something if an all ti cassette costs $269 now and half ti costs $159, and steel $89.

I think the Wipperman chains wore far too fast and destroyed the cassettes, btw. Just a guess, though.

If I sent them my now cracked Colnago Ti frame if I could get a couple of bucks from it???

Just joking. The frame is getting a good polish, then going on my wall as 'bike art'
It would make a hell of a set a wind chimes!nmthe bull

My cross bike (named Frank as in Frankenbike) uses worn out cassettes and chains. I can put just about any worn out cassette on him and it'll work. I'll pay for shipping too.
