Amen to that. My steel frame is (still) great. But I love my Ti bike even more.The theme of this thread now seems to be ''to each, their own''. Also, it seems, that steel is still a contender for some.
This is great information. I always heard comments about my cheap aluminum frame (7005)... about how stiff it must be, or how low-tech it was. I had nothing to compare it to, and it had very thick/over-sided tubes and it always felt fine to me, even on 200+ km rides. There was a lot of flex in it I felt, but it was comfortable for me. The only thing I was worried about was how thin the triple butted tubes sounded when I tapped on them with my finger. After the recent corrosion issue, I don't thick I can ever go back to aluminum.
The them of this thread now seems to be ''to each, their own''. Also, it seems, that steel is still a contender for some. Just stumbled across XCR steel. Does anyone have any experience with it? I saw that 958, or something close was supposed to be corrosion resistant, but I never see any bikes made out of it.
