StratusXP vs StratusXP AL
I am new to the idea of bents. I have been testing several bents in different shops.
So far the most comfortable and fun bent has been the StratusXP.
I like the 26" wheels.
My bike shop does not have the StratusXP Al to try.
What do you guys think about aluminum in the Stratus. How would the ride be different.
I notice on the cromoly XP that there is a a lot of "flex" going over bumps which feels like it smooths out the road, but I am used to a "harsher" ride from my aluminum bikes.
