Who can tell me if the Wally World NEXT frames are steel or alluminum? What about the forks, bar stems, and rear swing arm?

Also, they usually say aluminum right on 'em, cuz it's something to brag about.
In the case of "aluminum" suspension bikes, the rear tiangle is still steel, though.
Forks & bars usually are, too. As Rick suggested though, play it safe, & take a magnet with you.

...just don't use an "aluminum magnet". :jester:

Thanks guys. I don't care to go to WW, but I have a line on a couple of gently used samples. Living in the heart of WW country they are everywhere...

Regarding those AL magnets; if you can make me 10,000 pieces we could likely make a couple of bucks!

Merry Christmas gents (and ladies).
