Bought a 2009 Mary SS and love it, the steel frame is very worth the extra money over the Ally SS....although the Ally is nice, 4130 CroMo really does ride better. :thumbsup: Glad that the LBS guys talked me into the Mary instead....even let me test ride their personal bike since the shop didn't have it in stock....great guys!
I chose the Ally over the Mary. For me, its going to be a mostly winter time trainer so aluminum makes more sense than steel. I also prefer the stiffer frame of an aluminum frame. They hold lines better and carve through turns with presicion.:thumbsup:
