Is this just glorified 4130 chromoly?
How does it stack up against Reynolds 725 or Tange Prestige with regards to ride quality?
From AC web site:
"We spend a crazy amount of time designing our frames, dialing in not just the geometries but the tubing diameters, wall thicknesses and butting profiles to get the feel of the bike just right. We do this not just on one frame size, but across them all, making sure that each size of every model is precisely tuned to give the rider the experience and thrill that they’ve come to expect from a bike wearing the Hennepin Bridge headtube badge.
It’s a process and result that we’re quite proud of, so we decided to give our proprietary blend of double-butted 100% 612 Select Cro-Moly tubes a name. That name is 612 Select."
Is this just fluff Or is there substance to this? They're crafty wordsmiths.
