Guys I have a set of CX carbon frames for my 90SE but I noticed that the lower frames are 2 mm instead of 2,5 mm that the original TT frames are.

I am gonna remove the metal side stiffeners and replace them with 2 mm carbon stiffeners that I made from a piece of scrap carbon I had.

Do you think that this 0.5 mm makes such a big difference in the stiffeness of the frames?

I though carbon extreme offer the carbon side frame stiffeners. I wonder why they don't offer it for sale anymore.

I don't think it would be recommended to use the 2mm side frames without the side stiffners, though I'm sure some people do it. If you crash hard, plan on buying new frames. I've used the 2.5mm TT carbon frames without stiffners and it works fine.

Thanks Brian. Actually the stiffeners didn't help a lot in my last crash Frames broke everywhere except where the stiffeners was. This is how I made the carbon stiffeneres

I was not carefull when order th CX frames and didn't notice that they were only 2mm so now I guess I have to spend 100 bucks more to buy me the 2,50mm lower frames

BTW anybody knows how thick the CX stiffeners are?
