Due to all the marketing hype I was like many considering carbon the best thing ever, but since I have been cycling roughly 2000km on my alu bike I must say I don't see the big benefits of carbon anymore. My current al bike is more comfortable than my previous carbon bike due to the great fork, the flexing d-shape carbon seatpost and the frame is just: mega strong and only a few grams heavier than my old SL carbon frame. I never have to worry that a crash will end my bike with Alu. What are your thoughts. Carbon, Alu, Steel or Titanium?
