Specialized S-Works Enduro 29 - Review
Hard to say many bad things about this bike: dialed geo, great shock, lifetime warranty,etc. Take note however, the wheels on the pro and elite do not match the intended usage. You simply cannot apply the same philosophy of low spoke count but with a flimsy alloy rim.

Quai's Stepped Carbon Rims - Taipei Cycle Show
@radrider: If I still rode XC or road I'd be in your camp. In fact, I'll likely build a pair of carbon hoops just for fun one day. That said, our rocky trails and my fat a$# absolutely eat rims (I'm 190 lbs). In under 12 months my front and rear DT Swiss XM 481's have many chips, dings, and while they are true, will likely only last through this season. I had a flat occur on during a rock garden and slammed my rear alloy rim so hard it bottomed out my suspension. I pounded the rim back into place and still riding it. I'm afraid that would have been more ugly with carbon? Perhaps with something like Huck Norris I'd be safer?

Quai's Stepped Carbon Rims - Taipei Cycle Show
@leftCoastBurn: Exactly. Many of the top DH and Enduro pros run alloy when they need something that can finish the race run (especially on really rough trails). The performance gains of carbon rims remain minimal, if at all, relative to the risk of carbon explosion. The latter is much less likely to occur for the average rider. That said, if you like the way they feel get after it.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Even Off-Season, Bro?
I love it! A conversation between 2 Canadians regarding biking offseason quickly results in a friendly exchange about hockey. Go Blues!!!

YT Jeffsy 27 - First Ride
SOLUTION: don't buy the bike if you don't like it. It's not that great of a deal if you consider that most good shops will discount a similar specc'd bike to be just as cheap.
