Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Ride quality - carbon fiber vs aluminum?

Going by perception, the worst jackhammer of a bicycle frame I've ever ridden was a carbon road racing bike, much worse than my aluminum-framed Emonda.

That says very little about any other frames in any material. Or about anything at all, really.

Going by perception, the least-lively-pedaling frame I've ever pedaled is steel. But so is the most-lively. I'm not sure what to make of that, but there are a lot of things that I won't make of it.
