    According to bicycle retailers interview with the head of Giant's C-Tech factory (where they make all of the composite stuff). There is going to be carbon Trances and Anthems coming out this fall. No specs or other details were given.

    What are your reasons for getting a carbon full suspension mountain bike? I don't think carbon is that much lighter than aluminum. Carbon seems less robust than aluminum concerning dents and scraps. Carbon costs more. What can carbon add to a full suspension ride?
    Rigid keeps you one with the ground vertically. Fixed keeps you one with the ground horizontally.

    Actually, I'm a steel bike roadie! Bianchi Veloce. In reality you're right, I'm a mountain biker badly posing as a roadie - I ride the Bianchi with my camelbak.

    you can tell i'm a (try hard) roadie, right?

    "toys", yes, that's what it's about.

    i must confess, i don't think carbon is great value nor confers a magic quality to the ride and performance. it's just bling. some carbon gear is lighter, some is not (seatposts, stems, etc), compared with top quality alloy components. frames are generally lighter though.

    steel bianchi? that would be nice.
