YT Slopestyler Prototype - Crankworx Rotorua
I want my tools to look industrial, carbon looks too organic for my taste (it bruises or spoils easily too). I'll take the BlackMarket metal Killswitch over this one any day.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Are Name-Brand Components and Interchangeability Worth?
Things were swell until carbon fibre came out. No durability and super high cost. When I see a $10K rig on the trail, I think, Meh... I also crash a lot and still tend to keep my bikes at least seven years. That lifestyle is not for carbon anything. Avoid custom frames, avoid carbon, then what you have left is still affordable and reliable with the exception of decent suspension products. Add in all the unsold bikes from 2013, 2014 that are heavily discounted and it is not so bad out there shopping. Why my car tires cost almost as much as mountain bike tires, that I'll never understand. Surely the cost of materials is not negligible.
