    *resisting urge not to complain about people using the word 'like' as above in written communication (it's bad enough when spoken)*

    You're correct. Hi-Ten is junk.

    from another site: Hi-Ten:
    Short for high tensile steel. Basically what your car, your washing-machine and your lawnmower are made out of. It’s strong, if you use enough of it, but frames made with it end up feeling heavy and have a dead ride.
