Now if they just make the 2015 frame-only option in a good paint scheme I'm all set.

xtr uses a ti freehub body. dura ace uses an extra deep alloy splined body designed specifically for dura ace cassettes.

Yeah see there's a problem with your suggestion,.. this isn't really a consumer review site, mtbr's forums on the other hand are where people really go to report failures... but again you're trying to deflect attention away from the fact you don't understand what you're talking about at all. You would have been better to have said nothing on the subject at all than tried to defend your stupidity and removed all doubt about it.

First its You're not your. Second, are you a weight weenie? Does this site represent them all of a sudden and I missed the memo for that ? I would have thought that folks here would have appreciated a company exploiting the properties of a material to make a stronger and more durable wheel, not be whining because the rims are 15 grams heavier than the dent-prone alloy ones. Carbon is quite up to the task of absorbing impacts IF its designed to do so. And aluminium often doesn't merely deform, it also develops cracks when over-stressed. They may not be visible to your eye at first, but they're there and growing larger every time you ride the part again. I'd rather a part that abruptly fails when over-loaded and doesn't give this false sense of security that you can happilly keep on riding it because you're too cheap to replace it.

Yeti SB6C - Review
If I can bunnyhop a flat pedal bike with 40 pounds of ammo and grenade stuffed tactical vest and several guns on, anyone else should be able to do it with just a hydro pack and clipless pedals.

And I think you're missing an understanding of the basic properties of carbon fiber and how its manufactured affects the final product's strength, stiffness and weight or for that matter, how its actually different than a structural metal like aluminum alloy. If you made an exact same rim in titanium as the aluminium rim, you'd end up with a far stronger (at least double) and stiffer (60%) rim for roughly 60% more weight. But carbon fiber depends more on the lay-up of the fibers and the epoxy used to bond them together than the actual fibers themselves. Its quite common to end up with finished parts which weigh more than the equivalent part would in Al or Ti alloy alone.

I don't over-pay for my wheels, carbon or otherwise, but don't confuse what the majority of racers use for what is sold to consumers. American Classic at least will outright say these wheels are the same as what some of their sponsored riders will be using but that very often isn't the case.
