    Carbon + Recon or Aluminum + Revelation?

    Hi everyone.

    The Sonder Transmitter is currently selling at nearly identical prices for either the aluminum version with a Revelation fork or the carbon version with a Recon. Both bikes have identical spec otherwise.

    https://www.alpkit.com/sonder/bikes/...bon-nx1-sektor


    Which would you choose and why?

    Lighter (2lbs) frame? Or better fork? Decisions...

    Why does the URL for the recon build say "sektor"?

    The Recon is 130mm vs 150 for the Rev so it's a bit odd they're claimed to have the same geometry.


    Anyway, metal and Revelation gets my vote, the Recon is basic and the one I rode (on a Trek Roscoe) didn't fill me with confidence. No experience with the Rev RC but at least if it's completely crap you can put a real Charger damper in there.
