    unless you are completely weight obsessed, stick with the alloy. many have asked me if I'd get a carbon SB-95 when it comes out. I'm not racing it.. and I have my alloy down to 26-ish lbs.

    sure, a couple pounds lighter would be great, but I never have to worry when I kick up baby heads/rocks at speed, the bike tips over, etc.. alloy for the long haul!

    You really have a SB-95A down to 26ish with pedals on it? That has to be a rediculously light (and expensive) build list.

    high end build, but not redonkulous money. a lot of it i swapped from an older bike. sram xx/xo set up as a 1x10, dt hubs (which i already had) laced to cheapie Chinese rims. ti pedals. prolly 26.5? not sure, don't own a scale. i put it on a shop scale last year when it was built.

    before anyone chimes in about me using carbon rims on an alloy bike, and that i'm contradicting myself... rims are a consumable more than a frame. much cheaper/easier to replace. already munched a rear rim last summer (my fault, not the rim).

    I am 95% sure this will be my next bike - likely a late summer buy. Any chance for an all black version (a la the 66) by then?

    I take it you haven't click on the color link for the SB95c? You will be happy.

    No worries, and the blk/turq looks great, oven just got a thing for black bikes with red accents and not sure how the red will look with the turq.

    If no all blk, will still buy it!

    While I do like the Sb95a/c, if you really want a weight that would be key to race with. I believe the Turner Czar is XX1 and 22lbs that has been stated on a few websites along with Dave Turners video on the bike. Now I believe that is a full build, no pedals... Though I haven't seen a price line on the bike just yet, I would assume its going to be a tad pricey considering their alloy frames start at $2195... I wil still buy a yeti since I am not going carbon anyway.

    The first thing that comes to mind is "Wow, that's a thing of beauty". Then I notice the external cables and think WTF? No internal cable routing. On a carbon frame? FAIL.

    No internal cable routing for a stealth dropper post is indeed a fail. I really wonder why they don't have it.

    It is nice and a really nice frame, but the flex through the wheels (obvious in the last second of the vid) makes it even more important to have a frame that allows for that flex. Alloy cannot do it. It's too good a bike for 29 wheels and rubber (today) though.

    Any confirmed news on availability? Spoke to a Jenson rep and he hinted at August as a possibility. Looking forward to getting a sb95. Would like to get the C version, but 3 months out is a lot of time without a bike.
