Might not be carbon but it definitely doesn't look stock either. Different cable routing, no machining behind the chainring, and there should be an obvious weld where that Deity sticker is.

Santa Cruz are about the best in the biz, but look closely and you get an idea of how much would need to be done if this was on the outside before it was consumer ready. Carbon just don't pop out of the mold looking smooth and sexy. http://www.bikerumor.com/2014/06/25/bike-porn-santa-cruz-nomad-carbon-cutaway/

That's was a raw carbon frame looks like, move along. Paint is unnecessary weight for one, Gwin couldn't give two if his frame looks a little beat up, and three RAW is cool.

What Sideshow said. If you ever get to see a carbon frame fresh out of the mold it's not much of a looker. There's a great deal of filing, filling, and sanding left to be done to achieve the finished look. Even this one's been cleaned up quite a bit.

The '1-2-3' compression adjustment also works in the fully open/descend setting now (if I'm not mistaken previous versions only fine-tuned the settings in trail and lock mode?).

Graves is out for Rotorua So....time to let the cat out of the bag, to cut a long story short, 12 days ago while back home training I had a big crash where I wrapped myself around a tree and ended up with both shoulders seperated and significant muscle ... more ยป

To be pulled off the outermost links have to be able to slide inward. The small nubs machined into the sides of the teeth (see next pic) act as hooks and catch the links as they try to slide in and off the teeth. The harder you pull the tighter they grip.
