Hi All, Anyone got the new Aluminium / Carbon SB95 yet?

If so lets see it! Plus any differences to how it rides weighs etc?

Couldn't see a thread on this so sorry if I missed it!

Cheers

Dan

The carbon rear triangles have more tire clearance vs alloy, so that's a factor.

I'd think there's some notional/possible improvement in suspension action from lower un-sprung weight, I'm just not sure it's enough to matter on a bike. Could be though.

I wish my alloy had more tire clearance, there's times I'd like to be able to have a 2.3" tire on their with crud/mud clearance, and it's just not there to my comfort level. It's not a HUGE want as the 2.2/2.25" tires are fine ... there's just times I'd like something phat for rim protection from high speed rocks.

Or for more 'float' in the winter on frozen crap.
