            Don't think that titanium is better just because it's exotic and
            expensive. There are several problems with titanium:

            1) Expense- very expensive and even though the frame will be lighter,
            frame weight isn't nearly as major a weight issue as the choice of
            tire, rim, hub/axle, and cranks.
            2) Hard to machine. The only Ti frames I know of use inexpensive Miyata
            brand steel bearing clamps, bolted to the frame. This is because
            machining a proper Ti bearing clamp is difficult and expensive.
            3) Frame flex. This can be avoided with good design, and isn't a proble at
            all on 20" unis, but Ti is quite flexible. This can cause problems if
            you have a brake on your MUni, because the brake pads will drag on the
            rim as the frame flexes from side to side, as you climb hills.

            Having said that, for aesthetic reasons, at least, a Ti frame would be
            really cool!

                No. I'd love to have one too, but the price of one would keep sales
                numbers so low I don't think there's an economic incentive to manufacture
                them (yet).

                Check your caps lock, I think it's stuck on.

                  a good CrMo or Aluminum unicycle.
