The advantage of carbon over steel is weight. As you are not racing, and will be using the bike as a daily tooling around bike, the disadvantages of carbon far outweigh the advantages for you.

BTW, suspension seatposts are marketing rubbish. As I mentioned earlier, try riding without these gizmos and I think you'll be surprised. If you feel you need them you can always add them later.
