Sub-Div or Segments?

Hey guys,

Say you’re modelling something like a cylindrical frame (bike frame…),
is it better to use a high poly count or to turn on sub div?

Or is there a third option that i’m missing?

Cheers,
James

Subsurf on a low-poly achieves the same result as high-poly.

Or is there a third option that i’m missing?

SetSmooth in F9 maybe?
