- Oct 6, 2007Hi Tone (& Everyone),
Thanks for all the useful insights on the steel vs aluminum. I can
say that with opinions all over the map, I am no closer to an answer!
I think I will just have to try it out, though given that things are
crazy here with the addition of new family members, I may not have
time to try that soon. Plus, the idea of the stumpy as a singlespeed
has its own appeal. However, I don't have time for that project,
either... I've got three wheel builds to do before then, one for a
new super-heavy duty wheel for my Xtracycle, since the original rim
Tone, have you had a bike frame welder look at the Xtracycle? They
would be much more used to welding with thin materials than a typical
welding shop. A lot of steel downtubes are super thin and frame
welders know how to use the TIG welder to build up material.
