OK, I am a clyde. 242 after my last ride. I wanted to get some input to confirm or correct my assumptions about frame materials - especially for clydes.
Aluminum - very stiff and responsive, yet lots of vibration transferred
Carbon Fiber - stiff and responsive, smooth riding
Steel - smooth but flexy therefore not as efficient for clydes
Ti - very smooth but very flexy, probably not a good choice for a clyde
