I just got my new Ti road bike built up and went for an awesome ride. Twenty minutes into the ride the rain started coming down. Did I ruin my new bike...? What should I do?
Yes. Sell it, buy a new one. nmNiemand

Thanks for the help. Much appreciated.
But be honest. Advertise it as "ridden in rain." (nm)micha

How could you be so irresponsible???pnitefly

Don't you know rainwater instantly corrodes titanium? You are lucky you even made it home (or did you?) after your encounter with deadly dihydrogen oxide! A titanium bike is a privilege. With privilege comes responsibility! Now that you are selling your ruined titanium bike, what kind is it and how much?

Was it just plain rain or hard pissing rain?the Phantom

Pissing rain has a Ph of 3. Just like vinagar which can strip paint, kill trees and lube a salad. "I'm melting" said the Wicked Witch of the West...

The water will pit the titanium. Get a magnafying glass and check it out. You'll probably see little tiny pits..

The frame is toast.
