    Frame Weight Giant Anthem Alum Vs Giant Anthem Advanced

    What is the difference in weight between the Aluminum Anthem and the Anthem Advanced the carbom version also what do these frames weigh? I looked on giant's website to no avail. So I was thinking one of you guys might have the answers.

    I don't recall the outright weights, but the difference is only a 1/4 pound or so. The carbon front triangle is significantly stiffer laterally, however.

    The difference in weight is miniscule, and from a pure weight point of view is not worth it at all. My 18" Advanced with derailleur hanger and RP23 shock is 2,480g. I have never ridden the aluminum version, but I have also heard the carbon one is much stiffer. I think I've read that the difference in weight is more along the lines of 50 or so grams.
