@sherbet: http://recyclenation.com/2010/11/comparing-steel-aluminum-recycling Just a random bit on steel vs aluminium recycling. Turns out aluminium is easier to recycle and the process consumes less recourses, including petrol and energy. Steel is a bitch to recycle environmentally speaking but is still more recycled - think cars, home appliances, etc.

@gbcarmona: Again, this is the matter of opinion. I've read some reviews of titanium frames and apparently they tend to have an awful lot of flex in them, but I've never owned one so can't say from the experience.. I wouldn't say that bike weight has anything to do with its 'nervousness', at the end of the day your bike doesn't ride on it's own but with you on it! If it feels sketchy, dial your suspension in..

@vinay: I get what you're saying and I think you're right with some of it, but we talking full suspension bikes. They are heavier than hardtails, road or trekking bikes as it is, due to having shocks, linkages, etc. Add steel frame and you get trail bike weighing close to some DH heavy hitters. I will disagree with your last sentence - weight can be perceived as one of the primary criterion when choosing the bike for many people, me being one of them. I survive climbs just to have fun on descends, so anything that can help me with saving my legs up that hill is more than welcome. And finally I can't think of any pro riding steel frame nowadays, and they do some crazy times on those trails!

@aoneal: There are those French Burldogs. Although don't look like heavy-hitters, they are very versatile thanks to adjustable geometry - just need to feed them more than you should to increase their diameter, then they roll exceptionally well when pushed down the hill... (just kidding, don't neg me! I wouldn't do any harm to those cute little doggies...)

These steel full sussers keep poping up everywhere nowadys.. While steel frames are not really my cup of tea, I can see them being appealing to some. No question they are durable and stiff, it's just... Isn't it that the industry started using aluminium because it can be as tough/reliable but LIGHTER? And didn't they start using carbon fibre because it's EVEN LIGHTER AND STIFFER? Almost feels like we are approaching the end of the circle and going back to the square one, like all that carbon and alu hype was just them fooling us and it was always meant to come all the way back to the start (ripping everybody off of their hard-earned money along the way). Or are steel full suspension bikes just a niche product..? I guess we'll find out.

@mazze: Gutted to hear how bad you had it with your shock, must have been annoying as fu*k.. Yea, it might be that they did a similar thing as with their inline shock but kept it quiet and fixed it with CS. I'll be all paranoid from now, just waiting for something to break in mine and checking it constantly! Touch wood, so far so good. What shock you are running now on?
