I sometimes think Cannondale still gets a bad rap from some of their first aluminum bikes with the down tubes the diameter of a small coffee can, yea, they were crazy stiff and very uncomfortable on rough roads. Trek's first bonded aluminum bikes also had that aluminum "buzzy" harsh ride as well, owned both so I know. Scroll forward and today's designs are so much more compliant and comfortable. Worry less about the material and more about the fit and you'll do just fine. JMO
