Hi-ten vs. Chromoly frames

Here is how to tell if your frame is Chromoly or Hi-ten steel:

1- Price.  Usually Hi-ten is much cheaper than Chromoly steel.

2- Weight. Because Chromoly is stronger it uses less material than Hi-ten

3- Tapping. Just by looking at the bicycle it is hard to tell what material it is.  If you have a pencil tap the frame.  If it sounds like "Ding" instead of "Donk" it is probably Chromoly.
