    09 FTM vs 10 FTM Carbon

    With the current pricing I'm thinking of upgrading my 2009 FTM frame to a 2010 FTM Carbon. Anyone have experience with both? Pro's con's or any advice would be appreciated. Assuming I do this what is a 2009 FTM frame with RP23 worth?

    Thanks in advance.

    $500.00 at most. seeing as Jenson USA was selling them for $799.99 and that they had a light rail problem. I like the new 2010 ones because of the tapered head tube. What size frame are you selling?

    Yep, $500 was the neighborhood I was thinking. I think I have $1200 into it...was a clearance from Jenson almost exactly a year ago. I guess I have to figure out if the additional $600-$700 is worth a new carbon frame.

    Any comments from guys who have ridden both?

    I have 6 titus bikes, 1 moho, 2 moto lites (07 & 08-650b), 1 racer x, 1 2009 ftm alum. and 1 2010 ftm carbon. I think the ftm carbon is stiffer in both the frt & rear. It feels lighter, but its not much lighter when weighted. It has to be one of the most butifully designed frames i have (22 bikes total). Yes, i am in love.
