Video: Six of the best titanium bikes from Kinesis, Alchemy, Reilly, J.Laverack, Van Nicholas and Snowdon

Got a soft spot for titanium? We have, and here are six of the best titanium bikes we've tested recently

Despite being a sport and industry that is seemingly obsessed with carbon fibre and the latest state-of-the-art materials, it's nice to see that titanium still enjoys huge popularity. There was a time when it was an uber expensive exotic material but it's become a lot more abundant in recent years, with more brands using the material, and prices coming down a bit compared to the arm and a leg it used to cost in the 90s. It's still expensive mind, it's famously a hard material to work with can can't be mass-produced in the same way that carbon fibre can.

With all that said, we've produced the above video to bring to your attention, and viewing pleasure, six titanium road bikes we've tested recently here at road.cc. Have a watch and let us know which bike tickles your fancy, and if there are any titanium bikes you'd like to see us review in the future, do let us know in the comments section below. Enjoy!

David has worked on the road.cc tech team since July 2012. Previously he was editor of Bikemagic.com and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.
