Prehaps we should rename aluminum frames as "pretzel" frames because they go soft/lose rigidity over time and break like pretzels to correct frame allignment concerns!

I recently had my Campy dropout hanger aligned in minutes by a top Miami wrench. It turns out that I was suffering from poorish shifting as a result of the misalignment. He used a special long tool that both gave him leverage and a visual check to the rim. This was done on a traditional steel dropout on a traditional steel lugged frame. Can modern aluminum frames have the dropout aligned as painlessly? Carbon fiber? Titanium? Is this an example of steel superiority? Garth Libre in Surfside Fl.
