I put my mangos and kiwis in paper bags, my oranges and apples in plastic, then I combine the two in a double plastic.....
Each has it's benefits. There is no better ride than a well made steel hardtail for some XC cruising.
However, to build a lightweigh full suspension bike, aluminum is KING. You can manipulate and weld aluminum into shapes that would weigh a ton in steel.
It all depends on what you like.
I have three steel bikes and two aluminum. I like them all!
