Used bike question - Aluminium vs. Steel
I'm thinking about buying a second hand bike frame. The options are:
1. Trek 970 (Steel, True temper I guess), I'm not sure about the model but rather "old"
2. Cannondale F2000 SL (CAAD 3,Aluminium) model 2000-2001
Both of the frames are great looking, no dents, no cracks.
I'm thinking about doing XC and perhaps a race or two.
The frames cost is the same.
I was thinking about the F2000 but I know that aluminium is easy to brake and habe a limited life span. Still will serve me much longer but is ~800 grams heavier.
What do you say ??
