I've made my mind up, i want a 2008 scalpel to replace my Rush. But which frame Alu or Carbon. I'm swapping all my gear over from the Rush to the Scalpel so specs not a worry it's just the frame. Only one bike mag in the UK have tasted both back to back and they voted for...........The alu version.
What do we think then? :confused:

Strangely the Scalpel 3 frame we bought in as a warranty had a BB30 and we had to press in an adaptor. I dont know why they do a BB30 alloy frame and have one Carbon frame (the 2) in the range with a standard threaded BB shell???? The Carbon is lighter by about 1/4 lb and laterally stiffer. I think the carbon rides a little smoother, but its a small difference.
