You're right, only use carbon for road bikes. It's stupid to put it on DH bikes too. ;-)

What paradox? Taking weight off a fatbike makes a huge difference in handling.

That is oversimplification of theory. Sure, the basket ball example is true, higher pressure bounces higher. But tires and human riders are not that simple. Look at the fat tires as being like a trampoline. Jumping on a trampoline bounces you upward. Jumping on a hard floor does not. I can't explain the science but I think it has to do with how much force your legs can withstand and over how much time that rebound force is applied. It determines whether a rider stiff legs all the way through a longer rebound or must absorb a hard but short rebound. Seriously. Try it sometime. Do a multi foot drop at 8psi and then at 28psi. I would bet you bounce higher at the lower pressure. I certainly do.

Reducing psi actually produces more bounce. Not the usual getting knocked around like will happen with any bike, but actual rebound from compressing the tire and then it springing back.

Salsa Bucksaw - Review
The reason people rode rigid up until this year is because there weren't shock options other than dyi and one boutique inverted fork. Big tires aren't really suspension. They absorb a bit of impact but then bounce. The bounce limits fast cornering on rough terrain. Seriously, the bouncing is significant. Whether rear suspension is required, there will be no agreement on that just like there isn't for traditional mountain bikes. Different riders and different terrain...

Ignore whether there is hype or not. Just notice that the majority of people who try fat bikes say they had a ton of fun. For a lot of people it won't be worth buying one, but they are fun. As for climbing, it is absolutely ridiculous what is possible with that much traction. I find myself choosing horrible lines on purpose, meanwhile grinning about the person on a normal bike who attempts to follow. Fatbikes won't win races but they do change the experience. Your normal trails can be ridden differently. It's like trying out a new trail system without having to drive to a new trail system.

Hope Tech Enduro Wheelset - Review
Not saying that they all fall apart. Just that many do. I think they're only held on by friction from an o-ring. In my opinion, a better design have the two parts are mechanically secured rather than relying on friction after being slid together.
