    I have narrowed my choices for a new ride down to the 1500 and the 2100. The main difference being the carbon seat stays. I am looking to put in ~150 hilly miles a week between now November.
    Just how important are those seat stays?
    Thanks for the input.

    1. A little more comfortable

    2. Less weight (?). If so, not a lot of weight is shaved off= you probably won't notice a difference between the two.

    3. Style.

    I don´t know about the 2100, but I recently purchased the 1500 (international version = full Ultegra, except cassette), and I can´t complain about weight or confort. I still have to test at climbing a good hill.

    However, this is the first bike I bought and I still have a lot to learn. My budget was only able to buy a 1500 (import is expensive!!) and I don´t think I would take full advantage of 2100 frame.
