If you're ready for a bent, you probably want to get away from the body pains of a DF. I tested both aluminim and steel RANS bikes. I bought the steel. The aluminum gives a great ride on smooth pavement - light and responsive, so if you're going to be riding just on smooth surfaces, it's great. On less forgiving surfaces, the steel is nice and springy, while with the aluminum you feel every tiny bump.
