I have been riding with a club for a few months now and I have noticed I havenít seen many steel bikes represented. We did have one or two for a while and one was a classic Waterford. (Nice looking bike) The last few times the guy with the Waterford has been riding his CF bike so we were down to one. We had one rather strong rider than has been riding an old Diamondback Road touring bike. Monday as we staged for our ride the diamondback rides cruised up on a brand new Specialized Tarmac Elite Compact. So as we pulled out of the parking lot there were 3 Giant OCR1s, 2 Lightspeeds, 3 Specialized , one Giant FCR and a Jamis. The most we have ever had is 15 so it isnít a big road club but still I was surprised after visiting many of these forums to see so few steel bikes. I havenít visited all of the club memberís homes to see what they have in their stable but I can say they do club rides on something other than steel. Why donít we see more steel bikes?
