@DFP with aero I mean sort of skinny frame with fat down tube. As a reference I'm currently like a lot the Langster pro or Leader 735 in terms of look and feel. I'm not sure how close you can get to those without sacrifice weight and strength but the more the better ;)
Anyway, by your comments, my understanding now is that despite everything steel is still the best choice around especially for the "average" cyclist like me.
You will probably not find a steel frame with a fat downtube or at least not as large as you'll find on an aluminum one...the oversized downtube is necessitated by the specific properties of aluminum, for steel it's really just extra weight
