    steel is crisper than ti….there you go.

    I personally prefer the feel of steel as every ti bike i’ve ever ridden feels ‘soft’ by comparison. (though i know you can build stiff ti, etc etc).

    How about something like a de rosa corum, steel in a modern guise.

    Or in fact any Reynolds tubeset from 631 and up.
    Looking for a change from my old Ti Airbourne with it’s Reynolds carbon forks.
    I know steel will be a little heavier, but I want to be told 😕 that a steel frame would be a little crisper.
    My Ti bike has served me well and is still a head turner, but the qualities that make it so good like strength and comfort seem to take a bit of the zest out of it’s performance?
    Cheers.
