Hi all,

I demo'd a Sight in Moab yesterday, and liked it a lot, so I'm thinking it might be my next trail bike. I'll be buying secondhand, but I'm torn between the alloy or the carbon. The demos in Moab (7.1 A I think) will go on sale in June for $2200, and I've seen a few carbon Sights on Pinkbike around $3000.

Here's the question: is the carbon worth that much more? I'm hoping to do some upgrades, so obviously the alloy will leave me some extra cash, but maybe the carbon is a better place to start.

Also, I felt like the climbing on the Sight was ok, but not great. Is it possible to make it less bobby and more snappy?

Thanks for the help!
