I'll pass on this bike . I don't think that CF is the best material for building a downhill frame .

CF scares me on a mountain bike of any kind, Some of the stuff is full of imperfections that weakens the frame and will just break on you one day. But i do like the look of that bike

Soccerun , I don't think CF is bad as a frame or component material , but I wouldn't want it on a DH frame . Aluminum is lightweight , stiff , durable , and cheap . What more could you want ?
