|I am narrowing down my choices for a new bike. I see the main diffence between the Serotta Legend and Concours is the type of tubing (and $$). How diffently do they ride. I am more interested in ride quality. I do 40-50 mile weekend rides and a century or 2. No racing. Looking to be fast and comfortable.|
|Could one be 3AL/2.5V and the other 6AL/4V?||the bull|

|If so it would be a stiffness and weight.
Personally I prefer the less $$ tuubing even though it weighs more it rides better.For me anyway I am a light rider(150lbs).

|No they are both Ti tubing. I am not so light. I am 5'10" 180lbs. I do understand it is weight and stiffness, but I want to know if it can really be felt, and opinions on if it is worth it.|
|Both of the tubing I mentioned are ti !||the bull|

|I think Serotta has a fancy name for there tubings so people will think they are getting something truely unique!|

|I guarantee that if you post this question in the Serotta forum, you'll get a complete and coherent answer from a number of people.

|are the amount of Butted tubing used and small weight difference. See the attached link for tube comparisons:
The poster who referred you to the Serotta site was correct.
As to Ride, some people can detect the difference and some cannot, test ride yourself & see.
