It looks like the guys in blue are ignoring him, but they are actually quite a ways away farther down the stairs and across the platform. There's a reverse angle floating around that gives a bit more perspective but I'm not posting it as it's just gratuitous.
I'm not sure a wheel set exists that would have survived that impact. When was the last time you saw someone almost rip their fork out through the front of the head tube? https://goo.gl/GwWa9p and https://goo.gl/sn6S7C

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/

Taking forward geometry to a whole new level

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.
Sunn, V-Process, 1st generation Commencal.... what's old is new again. I dig it!

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?).

Ha, you can't. It's just 2 photos placed next to each other. The tree helps hide the edges
Sam's also say 'Bam' and 'Drake' on the inside tongue of each shoe.

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.
At under $150 that's still a lot cheaper than anything in the current XX line
In terms of actual display bikes, yes the all-mtn bikes were everywhere (probably due to the intro of 650b and 'enduro', fat bikes, and e-bikes). That said, yes there were far and away more carbon hardtail frames hanging on walls through the exhibition center, but they weren't being used as 'show bikes' at nearly the number as years past. The Taipei show is very much a venue for manufacturers to show off their capabilities to potential clients, and the carbon hardtail doesn't wow the way it once did.

Correct, but you only get 1 pt for ruining the fun too quickly. Interestingly enough, a different link can also be fitted to run a conventional shock as well.
