    Carbon Frame with Carbon Wheels

    Hi all. I recently demoed a Giant Trance Advanced 2 and loved it. I know it has some lower-end components on it but a carbon full suspension frame with carbon wheels for $4,000 seems like an excellent deal. As I would like to compare similar bikes, does anyone know of any other carbon frame with carbon wheel bikes in the general trail/all-mountain category? The 130-150mm travel range suits my everyday riding best. Thanks for any suggestions!

    Almost every company makes a bike that fits that description at some trim level:

    Specialized Stumpjumper
    Trek Fuel EX
    Trek Remedy
    Santa Cruz Bronson and Hightower
    Etc,etc,etc...

    Thanks! I should have specified that I want to stay under about $5,000. I've seen others with carbon wheels but most have been in the $7,000 or so range.

    Check out Specialized and Trek. They will be more than Giant but you should be able to find what you are looking for.
