Depends on what you are buying! but the 5200 is the best out of those two!
remember with carbon if it cracks and you have crashed the frame there is no warrnty!
I would rather an aluminum bike! Im not a huge Trek fan thou!!
if you want a real carbon get a C40! I heard that the trek carbon frames are made by Merida!! you proberly did not want to here that thou!

Have you tried Ti? I lovethe feel of my Litespeed. I almost bought a Cdale 4000si, but it transmitted every bump, right to my back...

Carbon is the way to go and if you crash aluminum and it cracks there is no warranty either. I would check out the Giant TCR carbon bikes, I like them more than Trek and C40's are really expensive. The feel of carbon is much more comfortable.
