Here's your test: http://www.pinkbike.com/news/santa-c...-test-lab.html
But whatever. You can ride what you want, and I'll ride what I want. Doesn't bother me. Just don't scare posters off of carbon unnecessarily.
I'm not the expert on carbon and I mentioned that in my first post. I made a statement based on personal experiences and my opinions on it, so it would be very much appreciated if you refrain from sticking words in my mouth. I didn't scare anyone off, he's old enough and wise enough to make his own decisions. Quit trying to start arguments out of statements that were never made, it's disruptive to the harmony of the forum.
