    AHHHH, So cursed, love the look of carbon, but the ride of steel

    I just cant stop looking at my 2300, especially with the blackburn pump I just picked up , but my IronMan master is sooooo smooth, but a tad to big. I think Im gonna end up just selling both to get an RB1, but this weekend its so nice out and I can ride because I just sit there trying to decide which to get on

    I know this has already come up with me but I just still wanna complain ha ha

    What is the trek, a 54? Judging by the amount of seat post showing that things real small for you. Maybe you just need a slightly shorter stem and a lower profile saddle and the centurian could be perfecto.

    RB1 is nice but over rated. I had a 3 tubed carbon trek it fit great...I sold it for fear of the bike exploding on a ride. I do regret selling it. Oh well. I'd say screw the RB1 and find an old French bike. Most people are still scared of french bottom brackets. Look at a Motobecane Gran Record or PX10...

    Even though the RB1 is classic it lacks the style and finesse of our older french jalopies. Heck even a Carlton would be a nice catch. Keep looking.

    Perhaps a new bike with carbon stays and a steel triangle? There's a custom fabricator in Indy that does these. The frame is $1600 I think?
