    429 v 429c

    Anyone have ride time on both 429 versions? If so, how do the frames compare on the trail? Any really noticeable differences? Shock valving similar?

    Compare the Geometry #'s and you'll see there's quite a difference between the 2 frames. Carbon is basically shorter CS, lower BB, steeper HTA..It even uses a different shock than the Alloy version. As for preferences, that's a very personal thing. It's best to get a ride in on both versions at one of the demos.
