Since moving to San Carlos, I've been missing my road bike a LOT. But it's okay, I know I still don't have the space for it in my life at this time.
When I shopped for my bike back in 2002, there was not a big selection of stock bikes that would fit me. In fact, there were two: a Trek aluminum frame and a LeMond steel frame. I tested both and without a doubt, steel was a way better ride in my opinion. After I bought it , I learned about the phrase "steel is real" -- apparently, I was not the first person to prefer steel. LOL.
Anyway, I checked out The Green Book at the library last time and right there on p. 110 in the "Sports" chapter it says:
Now what about carbon fiber?
