Sep 20, 2018 at 20:50 comment added mattnz Quality Steel frames tend to boast about the steel used for production e.g. - "Reynolds 520". From an environmental perspective I argue rescuing a used carbon frame has to be the biggest win (Its already made, if it was going to be a land fill for the next 10000 years and you re purpose it, its way more environmentally friendly than rescuing a recyclable frame.

Oct 9, 2010 at 13:06 comment added dee-see For a quality steel frame, your best bet would be to look for an old-but-taken-care-of frame from a known brand. A model from the years when everything was steel. Adding this as a comment since I'm not really telling you how to recognize quality.
