    For Mike - carbon 29ers?

    Are you/have considered a carbon Moto 29er hardtail?

    Curious.

    Thanks,

    Mike has previsouly stated that he does not view carbon as a good material for mountain bikes. As you may be able to tell, he is a big fan of titanium.

    yes not carbon? Carbon is not bad material, if made correctly. Where are these bikes built?

    How many times are you going to keep asking the same question? I don't understand why you keep posting the same thing when it's been answered.
