put your finger on the reasons you liked this bike so much? Of course it's lighter, but I saw this same bike on sale on my LBS, and except for the carbon frame, my bike is the same. I have carbon fork and wishbone seatstays carbon, the frame is that special trek aluminum. The components are basically the same. It is just the weight?
The LBS was out of stock on Pilot 1.2, 2.1, etc. in my size. That is actually what I wanted to test drive, so they suggested I try the one I did to see if I liked the geometry. Well, I do. But I sure wasn't prepared for the sweetness of the carbon bike. It was as though someone gave me chocolate for the first time in my life.
Anyway, I can't really compare the different pilots (yet). I'd probably like your model a lot.
