    Do you have any time on it yet? How is the ride for aluminum, and how are the dropouts?

    Have about 40 miles on it so far.

    Spent the last year riding an El Mariachi, haven't been on an aluminum HT is about 3.5 years.

    First ride out, seemed very stiff and unforgiving, especially compared to the Salsa. However, after a couple more rides it actually isn't bad at all. Still stiff.....no flex detected. I spent many many years riding a SC Chameleon, so this is very familiar to me.

    Still trying to figure the dropouts out. Couldn't find any info on how they worked on the website. They seem well thought out and sturdy.

    After the 1st ride I wasn't sold on it....after a couple of rides......I really like it.

    I'd be more put out by the aluminum frame and the thomson seatpost. Youch.

    Sweet bike though. SC makes nice rides. You gotta get a cog with more bling at some point. It is holding the rest of the bike back.
