I have a Marin Thron OS frame with carbon stays and I would say it has a stiffer feel to the rear triangle than other steel frames I have owned with some vibration damping added.As a penalty the frame feels more deadened and less lively/springy than the average steel frame.I like the frame, but I can't say I would seek carbon stays on future steel frame purchases.
