What is everyone's preference or opinion on Steel vs. Aluminum vs. Carbon Fiber?
Yes, they'll do carbon.
Steel: Works fine
Aluminum: Lighter, about 1.5-1.75 times the price of steel, tend to be less prone to vibration, absorb some degree of drivetrain shock, are usually bigger diameter than steel and are stronger as a consequence (despite aluminum being weaker than steel)
Carbon: Lighter, bling bling, about 2-2.5 times price of Aluminum, super strong, super light, absorb some drivetrain shock
For my money, aluminum is the way to go because it's a solid improvement over steel for what I consider a "reasonable" price premium. Carbon takes it a step farther but it's way more money and the dollar:improvement ratio (value) isn't as good as aluminum.
