    It's not carbon fiber, the connections are CF, like the BB section and dropouts.


    Also a little more info, the whole frame flexs down when landing from a jump.

    Nice post.

    If you get lost in the woods you could put an acorn in the frame and catch a squirrel to eat.

    I saw that at interbike this past year. It was fun, they let us stomp on a piece of tubing to see if we could break it. If you think the pics look wild, close up it looks just plain alien.

    Cool frame. I'd like to take it for a rip and see how it handles.

    Better have a decent standover, though. Would work very well as a cheezegrater on your harbles...
