I'm not an engineer, I'm just an idiot with a somewhat educated opinion that quickly deteriorates to ignorance.

@GMAN1: the beauty of opinion hey!? Can I ask which bikes you rode the alloy and then the carbon?

@euroford: Bike Radar has the the Mega 290 Pro medium frame weighing in at 31.58 pounds without pedals. This is pretty par for the course for a 29er alloy frame with that build spec and in that size so nothing out of the ordinary. Have you changed any parts to keep the weight down as you are running bigger tires and I assume much heavier tires than what comes stock on the bike.

@ceecee: Trek has this pretty cool site page that goes over it all. You can for ask Trek through their facebook page, if you message them they get back to you pretty dang quick so many they have some more up to date articles. At the end of the article they do say "Have an old carbon bike or parts? Don't throw them away. Send us a note at carbonrecycling@trekbikes.com to learn more about how you can give your bike a second life." https://www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/story/second_life/

@WAKIdesigns: yeah you might be right, I wonder if it's the same for the Carbon cage and shift lever on the XTR products.

@WAKIdesigns: That would be some Wizard status shit right there. I personally would love to see technology get to a point where recycled carbon is being used to make components like stems and what not... I know this probabaly won't happen but hey I can dream.

@WAKIdesigns: So this is completely fake news? I ask because you seem to know everything or at least have an opinion on everything so I assume you have done all the research about this already? http://bicycletimesmag.com/trek-recycles-70000-lbs-carbon-fiber-first-year/

@inverted180: Trek has a Carbon recycling program. I am sure there are others out there.

@inverted180: In this case it doesn't seem like a big enough weight jump especially since a lot of companies can cut up to nearly 800 grams between their alloy offering and carbon offering. But in saying that I just hopped aboard my first ever Carbon frame and well.... I fucking get it now, it's different for all the right reasons. In saying that if you aren't in the financial position to own a carbon frame Alloy is fine and I am glad to see companies still offer both. No one should feel pressured to buy and own a carbon frame bike... But to say it's not worth it I will now say isn't true.
