Steel frame (+ fork) advice
I'm feeling more and more that a steel frame is the only thing that's going to satisfy the 'purist' inside me. Due to the characteristics of steel it sounds like I could expect a very comfortable ride too!
Two questions: if steel is such a nice and 'springy' material for a frame, why are carbon forks often preferred by the makers of the finest steel bikes, and: I'd like to spend my money on a British frame - any top recommendations? It needs to be something pretty sprightly, but nothing that will necessarily be raced seriously.
