Steel frame with rigid fork > aluminum frame with suspension fork (unless you ride rough terrain).

Suspension forks don't pull their weight on paved surfaces or smooth dirt. Fatigue from the extra weight of a suspension fork will outweigh increased comfort from the shock absorption on all but the shortest rides.
