This carbon dampening thing is largely a myth in my experience unless you've gone with a flexy CFRP frame
Engineers have been using rubber bushes to absorb vibration for decades, and I don't think a switch to carbon fibre is imminent.
@reddraggon- all carbon bikes are "CFRP." Carbon fibre by itself is a fabric, you wouldn't get a bike out of that without the plastic bit. The carbon reinforces the plastic.
It's a resin or polymer, only n00bs call polymers plastic
Don't Specialized put rubber in their carbon frames and forks? Zertz, or something?
I think the biggest feeling will that it much stiffer so feels faster and more responsive
to OP - it depends on the build of the frame and how the carbon tubing is wrapped, how many wraps etc. Having said that you should find the carbon frame to be lighter, (generally) more comfortable and to be more efficient in delivering your input to the rear wheel. I would NOT buy a alloy road bike anymore, they are on the decline like steel frames were 20 years ago.
worrying now about all the scare mongering about bombing down a hill and the bike cracking in half .have you had any break.
