    i would be afraid to ride it over grass. at 13 pounds strength has got to be lacking here, it probably has a substantial weight limit. I will stick with my 21pound steed

    Nice "show" bike. Useless if you don't have the confidence to bang it around real trails.

    That's nice... I don't think it would be quite that easy to break, to those who posted above.

    It is carbon, and they claim it is strong. Alot of people wont believe that, but think of the things people wouldn't think would ever happen 15 years ago compared to now.

    Scott wouldn't be selling the frame if it wasn't strong.

    The guy is 6'1" and weighs 102lbs! He didn't mention that he had his bones replaced with carbon fiber units too! If you think the bike cost alot it was nothing next to the CF bones!
