Commencal Meta V4 Race - Review
I've never ridden a Commencal bike but they look awesome! Hopefully, one of these days I'll have one in my garage!

Also carbon is better in some cases and for certain people so to say "It's not necessary" can be said for aluminum, steel, and titanium

I can agree with your statement there. Everyone is different but from an engineering standpoint carbon fiber is a superior material in terms of what you an do with it. Metal frames have a place and of course some prefer them. But as someone who prefers carbon frames, I'd rather have a good carbon frame with a lower quality build than an alloy frame with a higher quality build kit.

Agreed. I'd rather have a carbon frame with a lower quality build kit than a Alloy frame with a high quality build kit. You can upgrade down the road and you have a kickass frame. Aluminum is nice but lets be honest, carbon is the future and not just for bikes...

Ask Pinkbike: Used Carbon, Shoe Advice, Replacement Cranks and Super Gravity Tires
I have heard about delays in the production frames and there is in fact a delay. From what most people are saying online they're being told 1-2months so your friend will "probably" have his frame by June. Anyways, yes Bike mag broke 2, pinkbike broke one and where are the others? I did a quick google search for broken Yeti SB6 and cannot find anything beyond those 2. All that I'm saying is that the issue is being resolved and considering the performance that people are reporting (and that I have been able to experience) the SB6 is certainly worth the issues they had with the earlier version...

Ask Pinkbike: Used Carbon, Shoe Advice, Replacement Cranks and Super Gravity Tires
Listen, I'm not trying to sound like an ass when I ask this but did you read the letter Yeti sent to all the bike testers? It was a pre-production batch of 20 frames that had issues with the carbon lay up of the rear triangle. I recently demoed a Yeti SB5 for 3-days but I asked the shop why they didn't have any 6s in. Their words were that they were having issues getting anything from Yeti. Now, my guess is that some of what you're saying about a redesign is true but that redesign has already occurred. If anything all they're doing now is overseeing what the hell the manufacturer is doing and being sure they do the right thing to every bike. Also, I'd rather break a chainstay then anything else. Mainly because its an EXTREMELY vulnerable part of the bike at any speed and it's less expensive to replace than a front trinagle... For tl;dr, Yeti's press release mentioned 20 preproduction frames were compromised. Oversight of manufacturer is in effect...
