    Weight/performance difference of ALU & carbon NRS

    Is there much difference between the NRS ALU and Carbon frame in terms of race performance and weight?

    and to add, the canti stud versions....

    are no lighter than the alu. In one or two digital weigh ins, some carbon ones have actually weighed more. my disc specific, however, was 100 grams less than Alu.

    i always thought ppl prefer carbon due to the more forgiving ride characteristics....
