    High-Ten Steel

    I have read several articles on frame materials including Sheldon Brown without finding the answer to my question. Probably have just passed over the obvious. What is High-Ten Steel (label on Schwinn)? :confused:

    From Sheldon's Glossary:

    High tensile, high tension, Hi-Ten
    A fancy-sounding name for the ordinary tubing used to build cheap bicycle frames.
    Training: 2002 Fuji Roubaix Pro (105 triple)
    Commuting/Daytripping: 2001 Airborne Carpe Diem (Ultegra/XTR, touring wheels)
    Commuting/Touring: 2000 Novara Randonee (Sora/Tiagra/LX, fenders, lights)
