@Climbtech: Well my 2014 aluminum Enduro Expert EVO weights over 17kilos. Comparable carbon Nomad weights 13.5kg. That's almost 4kg difference... I'm not a weight whiney but I don't know why would I be stuffing my bike to make it heavier unless I hate to ride with backpack...

@DrPete: I know that it is hard to explain to spoiled American but that how real socialism works. It was the same for cars, motorbikes, meat, toilet paper etc.

@DrPete: Czechoslovakia. Nobody forced you, but if you wanted a bike you had no other choice. The bike brand was Favorit. And it wasn't like you could just walk into the store and pick one up. There were waiting lists for them or you have to had a connection in the store or bribe somebody. FYI Communism is the highest form of socialism. Nobody achieved pure communism yet, and hopefully nobody will ever try again...

@DrPete: That's exactly how it works. Coming from a post-socialist country. There was one option of Road bike, one BMX few townies and no MTB... Probably hard to understand for people from US, but that how socialism works. Be grateful for what you have, nobody is pushing you to buy SC stuff or any other brand for that matter.

@maglor: True that, it is good to have different options. But talking about the rub. I've had carbon cranks on my bike for 5 years, the rub marks are visible but I don't think it had affected or damaged the cranks at all. I am 90kg+ and I've put them thru lot of abuse. I've been using alloy until now, because of the very reasons you have just listed.

@Rigidjunkie: SC gives you new frame on manufacturing defects and 50% off if it was your fault. But I am pretty sure that pedal would not make its way thru if you just toss other bike on top of yours... But understand your concern I had the same five years ago. But now I've gained bit more trust in carbon.

Exactly, companies are making lighter bikes just to strap more sh*t on them. Makes no sense to me...
