Review: Norco's Aurum HSP1 29 is a High-Pivot Speed Demon
@Franzzz: Did I ever say that? I mentioned I know/see folks with Carbon several years old without any issues/failures. So do you have super powers to 'see' inside aluminum for internal cracks or fatigue? If you study materials science in any way you know that all materials are subject to fatigue /failure , bad heat treating, etc. I mean, sorry if not all of us are PHDs in material sciences like yourself. That said, I have broken/cracked two steal frames, and three aluminum ones over the years. Zero issues with my carbon bikes/bars (Renthal) so far. My Devinci DH bike even has a four year old carbon swing arm. Weekly DH park laps and headed up tomorrow to Whistler for it's third trip there riding everything including Crab Apple hits. So, there is that. I've seen more alloy cranks break off than carbon ones. Does carbon cost more than alloy? Sure. Is it for everyone? No. (But neither are Porsche's, Ferraris or Ducatis) Are alloy bikes good deal for the $$? Sure. However, the BS that somehow carbon has any less longevity with respect to normal use than alloy is laughable. Ride what you like, can afford. Bashing something else because you don't like it, can't afford it, or isn't your 'style' is such childish bullshit. NONE of us 'need' multi thousand $$ bikes of any kind. We are big kids on expensive toys. Why be a complainer? Why bitch about more choices? Don't like it, don't buy one

XO DH is lighter and works well (I run it). But, 'far superior'? Don't think so...no even a chance. Saint is a bit long due for a cosmetic makeover. That said, Saint/Shimano drivetrain just works, is bullet proof and super reliable.

I see several 5+ year old carbon bikes in line for the bikes parks every weekend. These are not superlight XC carbon bikes. Carbon doesn't necessarily mean short life. Keep telling yourself that if you like.

@makripper: Agree. I can switch back and forth between runs at the bike barks. No issue. Just haven't really been on a real BMX bike in 7 or so years. Last race I did was a local in the cruiser class, clipped in.
