Fezzari La Sal Peak looks interesting. Bible of Bikes seemed to really like it and the pricing seems very reasonable.

dual water bottles , and they offer frame sets , have to keep that on the radar .

On the REEB? A 32t doesn't seem that big with an Eagle cassette.

Chain guide probably makes it look bigger than it really is.

This looks sweet, and there is so much to love: the NUTS system, one front triangle for multiple set up options, adjustable reach, made in NA, progressive geo.

it's a good looking bike. i hate the shock placement and name though.

Seriously, that shock placement. Aesthetically it bugs me. Also not a fan of the branding/names/heavy metal image. But congrats to them thinking outside the box on going carbon.

You could aways chisel off them rivets but then you'd lose the serial #, man.

I'd like to know if this new process is any less polluting.

sounds like it's some sort of thermoplastic resin process that's purportedly less wasteful / hazardous. here's the patent ap, for composite keeners:
