My apologies if this belongs somewhere else....
I have an older roadmaster bike, and it's extremely light. I'm planning on repainting it, but I need to know if it's aluminum or steel. My logic tells me that if it's as light as it is, it's probably aluminum.
As far as repainting is concerned, does it make a difference with regard to procedures if the frame is aluminum or steel?
Can anyone provide any insight to these questions?
Also, should I remove the cranks before painting or just tape them off?
