Ask Pinkbike: Carbon or Aluminum, Norco Sight or Optic?
@Thustlewhumber: carbon fiber presents much of its advantage when dealing with larger, more open shapes (think HT/DT/TT junction or BB area). Was we deal with smaller, tighter shapes and need to build in fittings for suspension hardware, brake mounts, etc the advantages of carbon lessen as production cost (more small, intricate moulds, intricate layup of smaller sheets of carbon) increases. Santa Cruz uses carbon rear end because the entire rear triangle is one piece. Specialized rear triangle is 3 pieces and the cost-benefit numbers just aren't there for most of their frames to have carbon rear ends.

Specialized Air Tool Blast Tubeless Tire Setter - Review
Why no pump? Because most people already have one. $50 is a lot easier to swallow for a "second pump" than $120 for bontrager. We've used it to great success on 700x 33c cx tires, 29×2.3, 650x3, and 26x4.6 tires. It pays for itself real quick.

Merida Big Trail - Review
Just got my first hardtail in years after her a handful of full squish bikes. I have the Specialized Fuse Expert Carbon and could not be happier. I've sent 15-20ft doubles and tables, 7' drops, glarly, rooty PNW roots and love it.

I just sold my $7300 custom build 140mm full squish (from last year) for a $3500 slack, shredder hardtail. Could not be happier.
