Is titanium the ultimate material for off-road bike frames?

"Titanium frames are bombproof; […] I've never had any fear of damaging any of my titanium frames or worried about having one break"

Nonsense! laugh

They can break all too easily if poorly made, and poorly made can include many of the cheaper mass-produced Ti frames sold by 'household' names. Even if you don't know anyone who's broken one personally, a cursory search of cycling forums or the broader web will return myriad broken frames. 

And I'm pointing this as someone who does have a Ti bike and loves the way it rides.
