    the rear trianle looks weak…beef it up a bit and it would be feasable

    I’m not a huge fan of mixing frame materials. I’m just a bike mechanic, not an engineer, but of all the frames I’ve seen fail, a majority of them have been mixed material frames failing at the junction points between carbon and metal, including carbon tubes and metal lugs.

    If you want carbon, go with a monocoque full carbon frame. If you want ti, go with a full ti bike.

    serrota, lemond, and independent fabrications has been mixing materials for some time, including ti and carbon…

    Let not forget Tom Ritchey’s titanium and carbon Break Away Bike. A neat bit of design if I ever rode one.
