Nope. It's super good, actually. Just stay away from high-tensile steel.

4130 Chromoly is what you want. It's funny how they just call whatever the other metal they use on bikes high-tensile steel because that is technically what 4130 Chromoly is - a type of high-tensile steel. So depending on what type of high-tensile steel they use it may or may not be a bad thing. I don't know why companies don't just say what exactly it is as as soon as people see hi-ten steel they're like, "Nope." but if companies informed people what they were using with actual product names people may not be as turned off. There are kinds of hi-ten steel that really aren't that bad at all, aside from maybe being slightly heavier.

It sounds like someone who is wrong told you hi-ten is better. 4130 is what all high-end aftermarket frames are made from(well for street, park, flat and dirt anyway). Tell your buddy he is wrong and 4130 Chromoly is the best material for a BMX bike.

4130 is the Bmx industry standard. It is best.

Yes AND it's lighter too.
Costs more cause it's better, so if you can do it, get it, and if you can't, not end of the world, but get it next time.

The old saying goes:

Strong - light - inexpensive: you can pick 2 out of 3. wink

as a welder i can tell you the 4 in 4130 is the tensile strength so 1020 the 1 is the tensile strength so 4130 is 4X stronger than 1020
