You still can’t engineer titanium to flex in some planes, but not others, to the extent that you can with carbon and drawing and bending custom tubes is expensive. Also you get specific stress risers at welds that you can engineer out with carbon. I’m not generally a carbon pusher, but I’ve owned and ridden enough different Ti bikes I would choose carbon for this application. Same argument for carbon over steel if we’re trying to make a true FS bike.
