So I have been looking at several frames some aluminum and some carbon. I am wanting to get a 5.5 - 6" travel trail bike. If I went with a carbon frame would I be sacrificing any strength and "toughness" for the light weight?
I guess what it boils down to is I dont want to drop $2k on a frame that wont last several years.
I have been looking at the Yeti 575.
Your thoughts and inside tech knowledge are much appreciated from this newbie.
