    The older (not current Huffy owned brand) Airborne Ti frames were pretty good for what they were. I believe they were made in China or Taiwan so don't expect Moots or Merlin type welds but they were durable and used mostly 3al/2.5v tubing. Some models used cheaper Ti in the headtube, dropouts, and bottom bracket shell which made them a little heavier but not really a durability issue. I don't know if this was the case with the Black Widow. They are probably comparable to the Ti Motobecane frames sold through Bikes Direct, solid value but not boutique.
