How do steel frames "wear out" or "break in" as they are ridden? As a bike polo player a stiff frame with tight geometry is preferred. A friend of mine just got a new polo bike because the old steel track bike he rode was beat to hell. Aside from the dings and scratches, he said that the frame was "very gooey" and "flexed alot" because of the all the torque and twist that he put into it over the two years he rode it.
I was wondering if this is generally true for steel frames.
