|I've seen figures in that range. That's about 2-4 ounces.
|50-100 grams - how to save even more: Free steel frames.||42/52 Kelly|

|May as well just buy a steel painted and chromed frame that weighs a little more than Ti, looks better, and is way cheaper.
Invest the money you save by choosing steel instead of Ti. In a few years you will have accumulated enough money to buy another steel frame. Of course you probably won't need one for another 10 years or more. It is almost like a frame-for-life in effect because the money you save by choosing steel finances your future purchases. You are in a much better position financially by choosing steel. Plus you have a great looking, riding frame that is easy to repair, and is already painted.
