“Aluminum has a lower strength-to-weight ratio than steel, meaning that more volume of aluminum is required to make a frame that holds up to our strength standards. This is why you’ll notice that the tubing used”
Can someone explain this a bit further? I thought aluminum tubing has thinner walls and larger diameter compared to steel to achieve needed strength for a frame. And it appears this generally results in lighter aluminum frames than steel. I am speaking in generalities because i must be misunderstanding something somewhere. The jump from “strength to weight” to “more volume of aluminum” has me a bit confused.
And the bike looks awesome, cant wait to get a matching set of full suspension chromags for me and my (currently 2 year old) son in a few years.
