@scvkurt03: Pratt! I am not making it up otherwise i would not have made the comment. In fact i saw some 'airing dirty laundry' comments he made about Specialized on his Twitter a few years ago. Maybe you need to check your history on it fan boy!

4 New Materials That Could Improve Carbon Fiber
Simple solution. Just build bikes out of metal and there would be no need to finding ways of carbon stronger, simples! Anyway whats happened to carbon being a wonder meterial...'lighter, stonger, stiffer, better' than all things metal?? Thats what the industry had been banging on about for years. Now we need to find ways of making it stronger...makes me laugh!

Nicolai Releases New Saturn 14 Trail Bike
Who cares! The raw rugged strong construction of this frame is what matters not ultimate asthetics. Give me this bike over a pretty carbon frame anytime!!
