    Alrighty, what does it mean when someone says 'It has a "cro-mo" frame and fork'? No, I'm not up to par on my cycling lingo.

    Chromium Molybdenum steel alloy. It is considered the best compromise between strength and weldability. It's generally good news unless you are looking for a super light bike. If you Google Sheldon Brown, he will probably have a page about it.
