the Niner EMD is aluminum. It’s a great value considering the component package.

That Giant XTC seems like a great buy as well and the least expensive carbon frame I’ve seen.

I think both are good options – this is why I’m stuck!

Is all carbon created equal? I’m almost skeptical of the quality on the Giant frame considering the price point.
