Especially enjoyable writing!  Well, my wife bought an incredibly nice, made in Germany carbon fiber enduro wonder frame a couple of weeks ago and I built it with gucci parts.  It is so nice and light, that I questioned my resolution to never buy a carbon MTB again (after several failures due to manufacturing defects, rock strikes on carbon frames).  She then crashed said shiny frame on some sturdy and rough sand rocks and scratched and mauled the front and rear triangle so bad, that we wonder if it is still safe to ride. It’s not cosmetic :D Bummer. Rock strikes and minor crashes shouldn’t make you wonder. It’s a bike meant to be ridden.  Alloy would be much better? Except - the carbon frame can be repaired. I’m still on the fence :)
