The steel frame is my Flight 500 bike (KHS)and the aluminum is on my GT Force. I know that there both low end bikes, the groupos being 105 and all but I thought maybe someone would have some advice or experience on wich frame materiel to race. I thought I covered that in my previous post..
SO what do ya think?? Or do ya have any advice on these lower end bikes?
What kinda other info would be of help? Please excuse my inexperience on the subject
Constructive advice would be nice

You have both bikes,right? You want to race,right? Its a no brainer. Race the one that goes the fastest,handles best and has no isues with respect to sprinting or climbing.My guess ...the AL one,assuming the fit is good too.Who is in a better position to decide than you.............Ride hard,die young,leave a good looking corpse!!!
Thanks for the award, and the advice,Ride on.....dcr915

That was simple enough. The alu frame fits the same as the steel. The reason for my ignorence is Ive been told to ride only steel. But the alu is lighter. Ill ride it
