Not everyone can be so innovative and successful as Lahar. (lulz)

Lulz. Considering Lahar was the first TRUE all carbon frame, minus hardware, yea... asides from BCD there really hasn't been much innovation in materials frame wise in the last decade. So lulz all you want. SC is barely to the point of an all carbon frame... because they can't do it right the first time, and risk liability and the company name, so they take extra time.

Massive international success? Most tiny companies DON'T want massive international success. They don't want a massive shop with many workers. They want to build bikes themselves. Massive and fully "international" doesn't mean shit. 99% of the companies I follow have owners/founders that they themselves make the bikes. Some of the best companies to ever exist have been just such.

I hear ya bro. If I worked for a small-time frame manufacturer I'd want to make absolutely no money and have as few people as possible ride my bikes! Being able to afford better materials, more equipment, and better facilities only leads to more money, which leads to happiness, free time to ride, more attractive women, and a feeling of accomplishment. f*ck that!
