are there huge differences between a Team or Yo Eddy and a Buck Shaver ?

I know the Buck Shaver was kinda bottom of the range but don't know why really ......

thanks

Buck:
- Smaller diameter toptube
- Monostay
- Not heat threated
- Butting is done differently

In real live it means the Buck provides a more comfortable ride, much appreciated by many in particular lighter riders.

all true comments made above. the yo is pretty stiff. If you're heavier or a big gear pedal masher you might be better suited to a yo eddy.
