The Arbr Saker - UK-Made Carbon Enduro Bike
What's wrong with making stuff in Taiwan? The reason people make carbon frames in Taiwan is they have the best production facilities and the most skilled workers for making carbon fibre components.

In theory carefully made handmade frames will have excellent control over fibre alignment and compression. It should in theory be easier to avoid leaving voids / air gaps in the carbon simply because you're doing it by hand and taking a great deal of time over each one. This should give you really good control over the ride characteristics in terms of stiffness/compliance. Whether the difference is something that can easily be percieved I don't know, I would imagine that the suspension settings and frame geometry would have a much greater effect on the ride characteristics than the fine details of frame material. But hey, it's nice to think about.

Richie Rude's Yeti SB6 Bike Check - EWS Round 5, Aspen-Snowmass
@inverted180: People have different natural bodyweights. Richie has a pretty stocky physique and thick legs and no doubt 205lbs is a pretty trim weight to him - he's bloody fit at this weight. If he was to let himself go he'd probably go up to 220, not down to 190. 205 seems crazy to a 160lb guy with a slim ectomorph physique, but to a guy with a thicker build and a ferocious appetite it's not that crazy at all. I see no reason to accuse him of foul play over anybody else.

I'm 6'1 210 and I run narrower bars also (740mm). I wonder if it is a bigger guy phenomenon that we like slightly narrower bars or if it's just a coincidence. Would be interested to hear somebody with some knowledge of biomechanics weigh in on this
