Alright folks, I am going to be pulling the trigger on a new frame for my next build. I thought I was pretty set on getting a lugged steel frame from F5 made with Columbus Zona tubing, but the more I ride my current fixed gear the more I think that I wouldn't mind testing the waters of fixed gear racing. F5 offers a pretty slick aluminum frame paired with a carbon fork for not much more than the steel frame.($575 CDN)
I've never ridden aluminum, mainly due to the fact of the somewhat harsh roads around here and my liking of the dampening qualities of steel, but having the responsiveness and lighter weight of aluminum is something I am wholly curious about. Is there really that big of a difference that I would notice it if I am really hammering on my bike?
I've read the pros and cons of steel vs aluminum, was just hoping to get some personal feedback all neatly packed into this thread.
