Now I'm really curious if the C frames are stronger than the CC frames?

I've hit my downtube on logs so hard that I hurt myself. I've got chunks missing from Wildcat. Crashed so hard at Kingdom into a rock (I found a rock) I taco'd my chainring. Frame is OKish.

I think a comparative test is in order, who want to sacrifice a few $1K in the name of science? I’m out, my bike is aluminum...

Just saw this post on FB and I thought it might be helpful. We’ve sent a bunch of frames to Ruckus over their years. They also have a good podcast on carbon repairs. Their work is phenomenal, but not necessarily cheap. Still less than a new frame in every case.
