Pete and Mark are correct.  I'm not sure if it's cool to link to one of our own blog posts (from last year), but this post about Steel vs. Titanium re: the Cache is generally correct for the Tyaughton as well. [https://knollybikes.com/blogs/knews/steel-vs-titanium](https://knollybikes.com/blogs/knews/steel-vs-titanium) This would NOT be the case for aluminum.  We build bikes based on feel and aluminum is an amazing material - but for full suspension bikes.  For rigid bikes, titanium and steel provide superior feel, even if aluminum is lighter weight than both.  That's not to say that there aren't some great riding aluminum road, gravel and hardtail MTB bikes on the market, but from "a purely feel" standpoint, both steel and titanium are superior (assuming all other things being equal).
