I've got 3k miles on low mount carbons and no discoloration at all. I live in Houston, TX and it gets pretty warm in the summer. I don't think you'll have any problems. I actually had a different response from Kyles shop than opined in the previous post...they said the disclaimer was for the attorneys and I shouldn't have any issues...so far they were correct. Ti's or carbon's are personal preference...Good luck
I'm sure you can get them resleeved pretty cheap if they do happen to discolor down the road. Yes they are expensive but they get hot and you can't expect them to look pristine forever. I have 6K on my Banzais without a hint of discoloration.

The only thing that will discolor when you get the carbon fiber satos, is your MONEY!!!
Get the TI if you want to, but take it from me(an old fart), you will be sorry!!!
The carbon fiber gives up the goods, along with a ton of BLING!! heh, heh..
I haven't stop smiling in over a year behind my cf satos...

Still hard to beat a Hand brazed triple butted steel bike for pure sweetness.
Ti and carbon can only be repaired by very expensive methods.
Aluminum and steel. Hell I weld that stuff so how difficult could that be?
First of all, Robert riding a wheelie - priceless!!! And secondly, I am jealous of your wife's ride!! 2 year old Cannondale pro replica for my bicycle. But I am getting older so I gotta get my new carbon goodies, and a new frame.
