Frame Material

I always prefered the ride of steel over aluminum for frame material on my DF bikes. I know that there's a weight penalty, but on a long ride, aluminum will shake your fillings out. I'm willing to pay the weight penalty in order to arrive at my destination with my fillings intact. Do any of you find that, on recumbent trikes, steel rides better than aluminum?


  • The Chromoly steel frames are definitely more comfortable as far as road vibration goes, or lack there of.

    The lighter weight and rigidity of the aluminum frames are great for a sporty, racy ride.
