    Advise for carbon frame .

    Always want to assemble a bicycle.

    I want to buy a carbon frame. But different frame has different price.

    For the carbon mountainbike(cross country), I want to know the difference between a$1000 frame and a$2000 frame.

    Depends on how the manufacturer constructed it, and their overhead, and their desired profit margin.

    like Lady's of the Evening, it's a safe bet the 2000 one weighs less than the 1000 one. most likely, more attractive too.

    Mostly it will be weight. Santa Cruz has a low-end carbon frame and a high-end carbon frame that they sell on their 5010. The geometry is the same, Santa Cruz states the difference is in the carbon to make the high-end lighter thus making it more expensive.
