What is the difference in weight between the Aluminum Anthem and the Anthem Advanced the carbom version also what do these frames weigh? I looked on giant's website to no avail. So I was thinking one of you guys might have the answers.

I don't recall the outright weights, but the difference is only a 1/4 pound or so. The carbon front triangle is significantly stiffer laterally, however.

The difference in weight is miniscule, and from a pure weight point of view is not worth it at all. My 18" Advanced with derailleur hanger and RP23 shock is 2,480g. I have never ridden the aluminum version, but I have also heard the carbon one is much stiffer. I think I've read that the difference in weight is more along the lines of 50 or so grams.
