Among road bikers who race or ride for fitness (rat-racers / club riders) steel is not queen... at least not in my corner of the world. By far the material of choice is carbon fiber. Distant 2nd would be aluminum (mostly Cannondales). I see a smattering of titanium and steel bikes. In my group steel is more like a duchess. I ride a steel frame that can't be had anymore. The maker switched to carbon because of demand.
