On a basic level, wood provides an undoubtedly better ride. Ten times less dense than steel, us wood frame builders have an opportunity that others simply don't have, the ability to make our frames thick!
For this reason there can be more mass in a wooden frame, giving it the ability to absorb more energy from the road while maintaining a similar overall weight. This changes the game when riding, resulting in a much softer riding experience.
