Geoff: We just watched the cycling World Cup Event at the ADT track here in Los Angeles. The Keirin was one of the feature events. The riders had all types of racing machines. Steel, aluminum, carbon fiber. Didn't notice any titanium. The new trend if affordable is carbon fiber. The technology has improved so much in the last few years that it is the material of choice. So the answer is both yes and no. If someone has an old frameset then yes. If it's made too new then no. So get an old one '83 minus and you are in. They were mostly the old regular track bikes, steel, lugged. Hope this helps. Anyone else to add to my comments? Ted Ernst Palos Verdes Estates, CA
