Help me choose my frame!

I have the choice of either a 1988 Aluminum Cannondale Criterium race frame, or a 1987 Triple butted/ Splined CroMoly frame from a miyata 912. Assuming they are both in mint condition, which shall I choose? Which would you choose? Also assume I will use it for aggressive riding. The weight difference is not significant<br><br><br>
Thanks!

The Cannondale will ride like a truck, I'd get the Miyata.
