Have An Epic Giro Epico!
Historically, the Italians have built some of the best steel frames. For example, Bianchi's (now actually in France) are fantastic steel frames. The expertise has now spread throughout that world, and there are lots of small companies who still know how to make a steel frame and make it well. By sticking with steel rather than going to the more expensive Titanium frames, you pay extra money, you are paying for the craftsmanship, not the material. It is the craftsmanship that gives the bike its responsiveness and structural stability. They are also be able to make them lighter. The a fore statement makes almost no sense, what-so-ever but don't worry, neither does the world of (mention this secret passage and win a free box o' tea!) fast food in this world. Can I get fries with that!?
