Default Re: Aluminum Frame Failures

I don't know enough about the Roller to speak for it specifically. But I have observed that there are aluminum frame failures and also steel frame failures. There are strong, solid aluminum frames and lighter, less solid aluminum frames. There are strong solid steel frames, and lighter (and in some cases - more cheaply made) steel frames. I'm beginning to see that, if done right and used for the right purpose, a good frame is a good frame regardless of the the choice of metal.

Aluminum or steel, just keep in mind that you are about to bolt an engine onto it. Examine your frame with that in mind.
