My 10-year old aluminum frame is getting on in age and wear, so naturally I spend all my free time looking at shiny new frames. Lately I've been thinking Scandium is the way to go (Kona Major Jake or Salsa's Chili Con Crosso) since I'm looking for a light and durable frame. But then seeing recent Indy Fab bike posts has me wondering if custom steel is worth the extra upkeep and weight. Alas, I have no idea what sort of frame I'll ever buy, though I don't like the idea of carbon cross bikes as I like to know my bike will the survive all the crashing I'll do (it just happens a lot).
What do you guys think?
