Video: Revel Bikes Produce Tire Levers From Recycled Carbon Rims
@the-joe: Aluminum cans can be and are often "recycled". Meaning you can make more cans from the cans and this is done. Plastic bottles are "downcycled" for the most part. Meaning they largely do not become more plastic bottles. I've read about efforts to change this, but the truth is most plastic is landfill or burned, but that's a whole other topic. The misconception is that when you recycle a plastic bottle it goes on to be another bottle, and that the bottle in your hand is made of recycled plastic. Hardly ever true.

A lot of "recycling" is actually downcycling. It's a widespread misconception.

Field Trip: Giant's $1,800 Stance 1 - More Traditional Than Trendy
You all could "easily upgrade" yourselves into a Trance. Seems a pointless thing to debate.

First Ride: The New Ibis Ripmo V2 is Carbon AF
So the thing about it is you have a lot off different terrain to tackle and this takes place over the course of a few days. A well rounded bike will be your friend. Some of the terrain is really rowdy, but a bike like the Ripmo (I raced mine at Northstar in the EWS100) can handle it just fine. Some bikes will be more plush through the chunk but won't be as eager the rest of day, or when sprinting flatter sections, or navigating tight stuff, ect. There is a ton of time to be lost on those particular bits if you are pushing too much bike. Everyone will be different but my experience racing enduro is you want just enough bike to tackle the roughest terrain but you want to be happy riding UP and down all weekend...

Field Test: Affordable Trail Bikes - Canyon Spectral AL vs Ibis Ripmo AF
For what it's worth, I own a Ripmo carbon and it weighs somewhere near 33. Now, thats with proper enduro tires (including Assegai on the front which this AF sports and is not light in any version it's sold) and a cush core in the rear. 2lbs. The difference in frame weight. So that's what we are talking about here, and I think it's a fair price to pay for $1200 difference between the two frames. Enduro bikes don't build light, especially with 29 wheels.

Field Test: 2020 Specialized Enduro S-Works - Basically a DH Bike Without a Dual Crown Fork
@HendersonMike: Absolutely, and I never said it was. This Enduro is probably a riot in any build.
