Aren't steel frames thinner than aluminum ones? Wouldn't that make it easier to dent?

I think that in general, alumium tubes are larger diam but thinner than steel, and thus Al dents easier.

dents add character to your bike...as long as they arent strucural dents i wouldnt be worried..

think of em as battle damage/scars...

Saw a brilliant idea on the internet for your downtube to prevent dents, get some flexible rubber about 2mm thick and stickback plastic it to bottom braket area and hey presto dent protection. Not sure how well it would work but sounds pretty much fool proof. But i personally hate dents.
