    Carbon fiber fork vs seatpost vs seatstays.

    Hi I have an aluminum cx frame. I thought it would be nice having at least one cf part. Which one of the 3 (fork, seatpost, seatstay) absorb the most vibration and make riding alot smoother?

    fork, then seat stays, then seatpost...the carbon front fork is by far the most benefit

    I agree with merlin, fork is far and away more important. In fact, I think the fork is the second most important component effecting ride quality in total, after tires. Seat post and seat stay are VERY minor in comparison.
    Becareful buying/selling bike parts on-line. I learned the hard way. :(
