Ask Pinkbike: Can Tires Be Too Wide? Should I Be Using All My Shock Stroke? Is 140 Millimeters Enough Travel for Enduro?
there is no substitute for bike skill, if you can ride a bike well you will do well pretty much regardless of what you ride, 160 may be seen as being perfect for enduro but that doesn't mean it is the only thing that will do, 140 is definitely enough even if most people prefer to run more

First Look: Giant's New Carbon Glory 27.5
it is not the carbon that goes soft it is the resin it uses, the resin absorbs water over time and so becomes heavier and softer, this is basically how carbon fatiuges and cannot be avoided but can be reduced by storing dry and putting a propper coat of paint on it, two things that do not happen as often as they should, however this happens at the same sort of rate as alu fatigue, but faster in applications where water emmersion happens, so hockey is quite a nasty enviroment for carbon sticks hence replacement frequency

First Look: Giant's New Carbon Glory 27.5
seeing as giant state their advanced frames as a t-600 carbon fibre fibre it will be a carbon frame and not a cheapy composite it is also worth mentioning that their anthem has a 200g weight difference between its alu and carbon siblings.. roughly the same as seen here with the glory

also just noticed that this is another example of a company that produce a "carbon" bike with an alu rear triangle, claiming that there is not a justified weight increase and then bring it out with a carbon rear end in a year or two..... its just the big bike companies trying to get you to buy the same bike as many times as possible

Giants Advanced carbon frames use t-600 grade carbon, which as seen here is not much different in weight to their alu frames, no doubt they will be releasing an "advanced sl" frame that uses a t-700 carbon instead meaning a lighter stiffer frame so that would no doubt make a bigger difference. of course there would be another cost increase Santa cruz do a simlar thing with the v10 carbon and the v10 carbon c

only time you get a flat is when you haven't bothered bringing a spare tube or a pump
