Spotted: Pivot's Lugged Carbon DH Bike Prototype
@millsr4: Possibly, but like all things it comes with a series of tradeoffs. Lugged composite frames preceded monocoque construction in cycling, you still can find tons of 80's and 90's examples on eBay. I'm no materials scientist or composites engineer but my understanding is that mass production moved to monocoque because of cost savings (labor+time+overhead) above even chassis considerations, which are there in aerodynamics, weight, stiffness, etc. The expensive part of monocoque construction is developing molds, hence why virtually every modern carbon MTB begins with aluminum or lugged mules. In my limited view the real modern benefit of returning to lugged construction is where additive comes into play, allowing mfgs to build strong, light, custom geo frames. Additive is also incredibly time consuming and currently niche vs monocoque scalability overseas (read expensive), and the price reflects, re: Atherton.

@jddallager: not cheapest in production, lowest cost and complexity in rapid prototyping. Once the designs are dialed, tooling (expensive part) will be finalized. Pressing composites for mass production overseas seems like it will always reign most cost effective.

Feels like a lot of great sketchy local trails falling this fate every year, look how they massacred my boy :(

Faast Flexx Carbon Enduro Bar SHIPPED

$350 USD
These are pretty much brand new so get the discount before I put them on a different bike! These are fresh bars, uncut 800mm 8 degree, with about ~10-15ish rides on them, which were a warranty replacement I got last year for a gen 1 variant . They do what they say they do and they do it really well as far as reducing trail buzz. Only remarks, there is a little shuttle scuffing on the left side metal finish. Picked up one pictured scratch on my first ride that being a perfectionist I later tried to fill with a dab of epoxy and naturally managed to make look a bit worse, but it is on the bottom of the bar and out of sight. Otherwise this one's hardly been used. Comes with everything in box, all the elastomers, etc. Can include a 31.8 32mm NSB Overlord stem for +50 for any of you 35 bar people. Price includes shipping, insurance, etc!

Commencal Meta 4x Raw SHIPPED

$1750 USD
One of a kind Meta 4x in brushed raw with modern decals. Absolute stunner in person, true raw, not clear coated (but could be). Size is somewhere between a slope and AM bike, super stable but whipable. This is the most fun bike I've ever owned and I'm in no rush to sell it, just trying to be realistic about what I'll be riding in the near future. Comes with Monarch RT3 (51 stroke @120mm, can run 42.5 stroke @100mm), CC40 headset, Thomson Elite seatpost, post collar, bb, and thru axle. A couple notes: this frame will fit a CC DBILAir due to a bit of material being removed from the chainstay assy.--worked awesome in this setup if you're looking for tunability. The frame will also work with a dropper if you're for some reason inclined. Internally routed only, 12x142. The frame will NOT convert to 27.5 wheels of any sane tire size, will not fit 30mm spindle cranks or piggyback shocks. Price is shipped, insured, etc. in the lower 48. AK, HI, CA, probably can too, let's just chat.
