Lookin or my first entrance into the workd of 29ers and wanting to go SS Rigid as a starter. I've been offered a full carbon frame and forks or a steel (on one) frame and carbon forks by 2 kind members. The carbon package is bit more expensive but don't know whether (on a tight budget) I should stick with steel and not worry about weight. Or go carbon. Should I invest in a lighter frame and spend more or stick with trusty steel. My other bike is a 853 lobster so I do love steel!
I'm planning mostly trail centre riding. Rookie questions but any suggestions?
