    labeling yourself a "non-hipster" is just as ****ing ******** as saying someone is a hipster

    Steel has a longer fatigue life. The bike will last forever. Aluminum weakens with time. You people need to find something a little bit less played out and even less socially relevant to post 'i'm bored' threads about.

    Who said it had to be affordable? I don't remember seeing anything about 'affordable aluminum frames'
    in the OP.

    translation: Ya gets whatcha pay for. Steel, or Aluminum Unobtanium whatever!

    The fact that it hurts you is subjective to the qaulity of the bike. While the ride may seem harsh on the road, remember that the manufacturer did not design any track bike to be heavily road ridden, and the ride comfort of all track bikes are geometry-specific to smooth, banked surfaces.

    Try a high end, aluminum bike with carbon or steel forks and seatpost, and see what you think.
    If it still hurts after that, then there's always the 'get stronger' method.

    I'm posing as a hipster being ironic by telling people that I'm a hipster when I'm reallly just posing as a hipster being ironic by telling people that I'm a hipster. In actuality, I am too old to be either.
