Thinking about snagging of these, but I'm a solid 215 -- muscle, honest! I ride a great deal, but I'm not going to get much lighter.

How do the Roadie frames do as far as flex and durability under someone of my mass? Would I be better off on Ti? Or, god forbid, carbon?

At 220# my Rodie is a nice ride still plenty stiff and handles well with as much power as I can put in to it.
I have a carbon fork on mine, and any unwanted flex tends comes from it rather then the frame.

As for durability, I have put a little over 4k mi on my frame over the last 3 years and it shows no signs of wear, except for paint chips on the dropouts and from road derbies.

Hope that helps for what its worth.
