    Chromoly steel frame is so 80's. Stiff, heavy, and durable until it starts rusting, would be a decent touring bike, but not the best starter bike these days with aluminum frame bikes as inexpensive as they are.

    Steel frame is better for a starter bike. More forgiving and the extra weight builds up your muscles. Rust really isn't a problem, considering you will destroy the cables, shifters, chain, etc. if you leave it outside in the rain and if you don't it won't rust away for many years... unless you are talking about a MTB you never clean the mud off of or ride in salty slush in the winter but again that will destroy the rest long before the frame.
