As somebody with a carbon FS bike I'd much rather have newer geometry than save the 2lbs and only the front triangle is carbon on the 17 anyway. You are going to feel the geo way more than the 2lbs.

An easy to try trick that works a good bit of the time if it is the valve. Take the wheel off and bounce it with the valve at 6 o'clock so you are splashing sealant around the base of the valve.
