    Redline Conquest vs Conquest Pro

    am I going to notice any difference aside from the paint? I'm not exactly the king of cyclocross. then again, the Conquest Pro frame is only $120 or so more from Greenfish sports.

    Pro uses U6 Aluminum vs. 6061 for the standard. The U6 is reportedly 25% stronger and 20% more fatigue resistent than 6061 so the tubes can be thinner (lighter) than 6061. I don't know how much that translates into from one frame to another. I'm betting that the Pro isn't 20% lighter than the standard Conquest.

    I say spend your $120 on components rather than the Pro.
