North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2018
@jaame: Undecided between over-expensive alloy and not light enough carbon bar. Buys titanium version.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@WAKIdesigns: Hence, if, for the benefit of the rider, a robot is replacing some guy at his welding station at the other side of the globe, one would expect the price to be lower not higher. Otherwise it is only about the thicker profit margin wrapped with some recycled moral bullshit story.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@WAKIdesigns: I'll buy into this resistance against the profiteering oppressor of the plant when the human labor-less, AI machined frames stop being marketed to self-righteous pricks and significantly drop in price, to be at least on par with the one being welded up by exploited Germans, if not Poles or even Asians. Until then I'm not sawing off any $$$ frame in half and selling it at $6.30 to have a clear consciousness. Though, if that happens I'll have to live with an unclear consciousness that some robot took er jerbs.

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@alexsin: Yes, I agree on the numbers being quite close to what I'm after as well. Apart from the real STA. It's very much on the slack side (still better than Slash though). At a fully extended seat post (especially for us tall folk) that ESTA will be noticeably slacker than what's listed in the geo chart.

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@RockNRolla92: Point that I made regarding the cheaper, alu-only builds in those small sizes, it was principally aimed at addressing kids getting access to decent MTBs at cost their parents can swallow. Not depriving you of your right to fork out a pile of cash for a carbon bike. As for the size S 29er, or the lack of it, you should refer to my original comment i.e. that it makes very little if any sense.

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@RockNRolla92: If the bikes are too big for small people (or children) then IMO the solution is not integrating the biggest wheel size into the smallest frame size, but having that #26aintdead wheel size in the XS, S, M frame sizes (with reduced suspension travel as well). Preferably as cheap alu-only builds. Regarding YT sizing. I would say that it is on par with Santa Cruz i.e. small and plays to shortone's ego. At 191cm I would not describe myself as XXL, but rather borderline L-XL. It's also true for my clothing. Unless it is Italian. Then all of a sudden I become size XXXXXXXL.

Maybe it's just their PC way of saying that it doesn't make sense for a size S rider to ride a 29 inch wheel?
