    RZ One Twenty 1 alloy or Scalpel Carbon 2

    Hi,

    Currently I have a scott spark 20 (carbon frame + Fox32 F120 + Scott Nude TC), I like the geometry but find the following problems:

    - Inefficiency of the shock (Nude TC), because don't have platform (like propedal) has too much the boob.
    - Fox32 F120 - great fork, the problem is because have tested a lefty 110. Did some hours in a Scalpel with a lefty and this fork is outstanding.

    Essentially do XC and marathon (usually without great technical stuff) from 3 to 4 hours, and the i most appreciate a bike is the ability to climb e be fast.

    I am sure that my next machine to be with lefty fork but I'm in doubt between the Scalpel and RZ Twenty one. The RZ seems to be more comfortable and versatile, but appreciate a light machine, fast and versatile. Will I lose a lot over the Scalpel in this matter?

    I've tested and liked the Scalpel, but the RZ is not available for testing.

    Thank you for your opinions and experiences.

    Stay with carbon in my opinion

    Although both Cannondale bikes are good, I'd stay with a carbon frame. I've owned several Cannondale MTB's (Scalpel, F-4, Rush, and Rize-1), but I like the carbon frame.
