Aluminum isn't stiff, but aluminum frames tend to be. It's all about the design.

TBH I can't feel any difference in ride quality between my Nashbar aluminum frame and the Chromoly frame of my Dawes SST. Or the overbuilt "stiff" frame of my GMC Denali for that matter. The one difference is I was flexing the SST enough for a brake rub last week, but that's a minor issue and not "ride quality".
