I fell in love with a Giant MCM Team a few years back and would still like to get one. What are some other cf hardtails from the last few years? I also saw the Trek OCLV 9.8 and would consider this one as well.

Kestrel used to make carbon hardtails. You might be able to find one cheap. Epx has a carbon hardtail too I believe.

I've got an older Trek 9800 hardtail and

had the pleasure of having the bonding fail where the dropout joined the right seat stay...fortunately I didn't get hurt. I was getting all of 6" of air at the time it happened. I converted it to a single speed and don't do anything off the ground anymore. Trek also gave me a hassle on returning it which I didn't appreciate and still don't. I like metal bikes now as I can see the joined tubes and dropouts, something that you can't do with glue.

Wait about 2 months, Giant is bringing back the carbon hardtail in the USA for 2005. I am 100% sure that this bike is coming out.
