That is hard to find. I'll give you that.

That I don't know. But I would rather not have to maintain a bike frame to keep the rust away.

In respect of aluminium, there is the reasonable possibility that this steel framed bike would provide a more comfortable ride than an aluminium equivalent.
Possible. I keep hearing steel rides nicer.

If I bought that bike I would give it carbon fork, carbon bars, carbon wheels and carbon seatpost. Might get it down to the low 20's in weight.
