    Moto "carbon?" fly 29er

    Any idea if this is an possibility? Just a curiosity of mine.
    There is a lot of buzz with low priced carbon 29er frames showing up. Moto has several carbon road frames, thus I imagine a manufacurer is in place.
    This would be a nice option if set up like the current fly 29er ti bikes, perhaps a few bucks less.
    Thoughts?

    I think Moto is pretty committed to Titanium over carbon for Mountain bikes. But carbon is clearly a better material from a performance/weight standpoint, so I wish they would make some carbon bikes. My friend has a Moto Immortal road bike, and that frame is amazing, so I know they could get some nice carbon frames if they wanted. Maybe they just don't want to deal with the increase in warranty requests from people smashing the carbon frames. I think that is why they beefed up the aluminum Fly, there were a lot of people riding them too hard/jumping them and cracking them.
