    Difference between 2009 element 90 and element team

    Only difference is the material right? Scandium on team and 7005 on 90.

    2009's aren't on the site anymore and it doesn't look like the element 90 exists in 2010.

    Thanks.

    That's the only difference in the frame, there's some different parts spec involved.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but is the build location not different as well?

    Are the 2009 Element 50 and 90 the same frame?

    I'm on a 2006 Anthem and have been eyeballing the Element for a while simply because it's a fully with two bottle mounts in the frame. Seems silly but I like to go long and I like the idea of not having to use a two-fish cage on the back of the post or put a bottle under the down tube. They get so filthy in those spots.

    Honestly, I'm a little nervous about the suspension compared to the Anthem. For no good reason though. It's just all I know at this point. Still think I'll try out an element though.... price is good on a 2009 and it's time to get a race bike put together.

    Anyone know the weight (With or without shock) on a 19" Element 90/50 frame?

    This has been a semi coherent thought dump... Thanks for reading.
