One advantage of aluminium is the resistance to corrosion. Doesn't matter so much if the paint gets scratched.

I can't really compare the flex. My 20 and 24 inch unis are steel framed but that is probably too small to notice any flex. Middle sizes are all aluminium and seem quite rigid.

The 36 is a Triton titanium. It is built of quite large section tubing and I have never noticed any flex in it. Corrosion resistance doesn't come better in any other engineering metal.
