Okay, so I know a guy on my team who's willing to give me a pro deal on a custom frameset. I want a nice track bike, oversized tubing, PAUL track-ends, severely sloping top-tube while still maintaining two 700c wheels, and an "integrated" seatpost.
I remember seeing on Isaac carbon fiber bikes that their top-of-the-line model, the Newton (I think) was all carbon fiber, but had aluminum seatstays because they're a lot stiffer and not too much of a weight penalty.
Can I have bonded aluminum stays on a steel frame, or should I just go safe and have it all steel?
