...who can't tell the difference between frames made of different materials?
I mean, there is all this talk about how steel is supposed to be smooth and cushy, and aluminum is really harsh, and carbon is good and eats up road buzz. And I rode full steel bikes, full alum bikes, carbon-aluminum bikes (carbon fork and rear triangle)... and I see no difference. All I know is that if the road is smooth the ride's gonna be smooth, and if the road's in bad shape, the ride's gonna be bumpy. Yet there are so many people who sing praise to steel or carbon, after they transferred onto it after the "jarring" aluminum. Am I the only one uncapable of detecting the difference, or is there a whole bunch of folks feeling kinda the same way?
