On a similar note, is there any benefit to the stainless ones over the aluminum? They say they are the same weight but they are also like $200 moer.

well, they will be a lot stronger for one. but do you really need them to be strong? I don't think it's worth the extra two hundred bucks personally.

This is especially true at this time of year since the racing season is now over. They may not get more stock until the March/April time frame. Buy now or regret for several months :)

Thats what I thought, cause I couldn't think of much additional benefit that would be worth $200 either

Some CF cans will fade in the sun over time. I can't say for sure about the Sarachus but I know for sure others do.

You most likely won't have your bike for more than a few seasons anyway, get the stainless and save some money for your next bike.
