Came across this link, which I thought might be intersting to those of us (seemingly most of us) interested in stuff breaking!

Check the link for BB deflections, Ti vs. CF vs. Steel!! nmSpunout

Both the stiffest and the highest flex frames were both Titanium so this just proves that it is not just the material, but how it is designed. It was also interesting to see that a Cannondale CAAD3 which is thought to be one of the stiffest frames you could ride had quite a bit of flex.
..old 531 and an 853 frame were among the stiffest. nmSpunout
