    2! Sorry..

    But really, the aluminium alloy doesn't make a difference, particularly 7003-7005. What's more important is how it fits, how it's made and how sexy it looks. Don't choose a frame because of the different alum. alloy it's made of

    More simple curiosity than purchase decision factor

    No, I didn't think that 7003 or 7005 aluminum would make any significant difference, I was mainly just curious as to how the properties differed between the two.

    Do a google search on "ASTM" and "alloys" and "properties" if you want to know the properties of different materials. You'll get he real data, not just opinions.
