Just read (and watched) the pinkbike.com story about Ibis.

Couple of things that surprised me:

1) Brian Lopes races 4x and DJs on a STANDARD Tranny.

2) Only a single downtube crack EVER from a rock strike on a Mojo.

3) Lopes won A-line on a 140mm Mojo twice.

Glad I ride a super brittle, super flexy, fragile carbon frame.

You can find the story here:

That may be impressive but remember that carbon becomes explosive if you leave it out in the sun too long...
Don't forget the cold.... it can cause unannounced carbonic explosions - sending sharp shrapnel flying every which way!

I read that staring at carbon too much has been known to be fatal as well. Especially staring at it in the rear-view mirror!

Great story...loved the detail explanation/pix of the HD.

Side note. I just realized that I rode with a guy named "Colin" a few years ago...introduced from another buddy of mine. At the time he was working for Santa Cruz I think. I never got his last name but when I saw that Colin Hughes was the engineer, the light bulb went off....think it's the same guy.
