I am a noob to both cycling and CX. So I am obviously very turned on by the hype of the carbon fiber material; although I am also listening to the reasonable advocates of steel.(http://reviews.roadbikereview.com/blog/why-you-should-be-riding-ste...). I think I am staying away from Aluminum for its lack of shock dissipation. So for me it's either the feather-light carbon or the heavier but more reliable steel. I understand both will provide a smoother ride (what about steel with carbon forks and stays? I hadn't come across any in my research). Anyhow, if one is to go full carbon how does the Tommaso Diavolo rate? http://www.giantnerd.com/tommaso-diavolo-cyclecross-bike-profession...
I am having trouble finding any real independent reviews on this machine. The price on this bike is somewhat less then other full carbon bikes i've looked at, and that's why I am intrigued, but also worried - you know the whole you get what you pay for thing. So if anyone owns/ed one please share; or if not please look at the specs and give your impression.

Thanks!
