As a fairly new cyclist 4- 5 years I have a question about frame material. Last year I bought a Giant Hyybrid with an aluminum frame. Have been riding with a club this season for the first time. While every one has CF frames I am able to keep up quite well. I also rebuilt my"vintage" 1980 Schwinn Super Le Tour, which has a lugged steel frame, and have been riding that quite a bit for the last few weeks. I can now feel the difference between these 2 materials.
My question do CF and TI provide a significantly different ride/feel? Also is one material 'faster" than another?
This is my quest for knowledge question for the week!
