That's because it is a race bike.

Plus it's meant for little kids, there's usually a weight limit on those. You can tell by the short cranks and weird seat, and the 'expert' in the name. The ones that say 'pro' are for normal sized people.

Alumnium frames will get you hurt if you ride them on the street hard...

What if you use alumnium frames for wheelies/manuals, jumping off sidewalks, and short commutes around the city? (less than 5 miles)

You are an idiot.
Man I hate people who stress about the weight of their bike.
Having a super light bike isn't going to make you a better rider.
Man the fark up!

Cromoly frames are just more comfortable to ride than aluminum ones. The metal gives a little and absorbs vibrations. If you get one of those super light race bikes and ride it on the street, especially with high pressure tires, it'll be harder on you than a few extra pounds and a cromoly bike would be.
