    The new 2014 SB95

    Anyone have the new frame with the carbon rear triangle? Why did they switch that to carbon? I understand its about 1lb lighter? Has anyone ridden it and compared it to the C version? Not sure if its worth the $800 less than the C version? for $800 more why not get the full carbon bike? I'm just trying to see what the advantage or disadvantage is.

    Personally, I think the aluminum front triangle looks better than the carbon. If it still shaves off a pound with only a carbon rear and it is $800 cheaper that would be the route I would go.

    ^This. In person, they alu frame looks better to me, love the squared shapes. The carbon frame looks a little plasticky TBH... I'm sure it rides great though!!!
