I'm about to get an aluminium frame for street riding.
I come from steel and I've heard aluminium can give you pretty uncomfortable ride.
Hence I heard putting carbon parts can smooth the ride.
So basiccaly should I go for full carbon ? (fork, stem, handlebar, searpost) or it will be too fragile for street riding ?
Also, I'll take some cheap carbon parts from aliexpress
>pic related one of the cheap forks you can find.

I need new mountain bike tires, mine are getting pretty worn now. I need something sort of multi-purpose since I ride my bike to work, which involves about 70% sidewalk/street, and the rest dirt.
There are two main issues I have, one being that I want a tire that won't wear as fast but still has the ability to go offroad, and the second being that I get flats all the time, even with slime tires. It's all from thorns and stickers, I know there are tires with lining/material used to prevent this.
I ride a Fuji Outland. Pic related are my current tires.
