Yeah, ti spokes snap a lot. My friend had some on his back wheel and within the first week, three were broken. I wouldn't waste my money on ti spokes.

But I have been told that if you take care and true the spokes that they last long and look at scotty cranmer he runs 36 in the front and 48 ti spokes wheel and I spoke to his dad and the guy who laces his wheel andb they both said that scotty only really breaks spokes when he steps on his wheel so that's what makes me think about getting them

if ur a new rider stick with generic(no ti no hollow no kevlar no magnesium no 7005 ect) stuff for a few more month
it will give you better apriciation of ur set up

in my back wheel i ride with 36 ti and 12 chromoly ones... i got them and i never had to get the rim centered, just re tightened one time, but if you grind a lot and hang up w/o a hubguard they will snap easely than regular spokes, also make sure to use a very strong rim, it will help to not go so hard on the spokes, its a good way to save some roational weight, kinda expensive of course xD

unless you are racing bmx just do ti in front. if you feel the need. ungodly expensive right now. but like i said if you have the money and feel the need. ti in front. doing every other in the rear would be dumb. the wheel would be unbalanced not only in weight but in strength. so its all or nothing on this one. unless you do every 3rd. which would if you had to be the way to go.

this is all i know about ti spokes by my experience with them
ti spokes are certainly lighter than regular ones, more if you use 48 at back, it saves concideraly the rotational weight using them with a lightweight hub and rim.
one thing that you have to consider is if you want to run 36 at back you have to get a really strong rim, why?, cuz it will decrease the lateral forces against the spokes giving them a longer life. Ti is lighter than chromoly BUT for the rigidity properties of the material it doesn't bend easely, so is kinda like the aluminum, it just snaps, that's why you have to avoid the punishment and the guy who will get the wheel laced have to be a pro, cuz like i said the ti spoke is more rigid and you can't bend them like regular ones when you put them in, so the guy have to know what his doing really well. For 48 you can go for any rim that you want (still have to be a nice rim, not any cheap thing) but is going to be a bit expensive and harder to lace.
For the front wheel just make sure that the rim is a nice one, strong but can be lightweight, and as a personal recomendation use a wide tire cuz those reduce the impact against the rim cuz you can use them with less psi making softer landings.
i run ti spokes at back with a demo anorexia and a odsy hazzard light rim 48h and like a said before just had to get it retightened one time, also i'm not too hard on my bike... i'm not the smoothest lightweight guy on earth but i doesnt take too much abuse, so it will help if you're a smooth rider.
Other thing like a guy said in other post, if you're a new rider stay away from ti stuff cuz you will break a lot of parts learning some tricks and expensive ti stuff is not what you want to break, trust me on this dude
i hope this can help you to make your choice about ti spokes!
