Fiberglass and Carbon Fiber are relatively the same product, but ti and pb, not even in the same elemental family. This also brings an interesting point. Why dont we see fiberglass bikes? We have a lot of fiberglass products. My DH certified helmet is fiberglass for example. Cars and boats are made of it, even tennis rackets. I think it has more to do with branding. Either way I have had terrible luck with carbon bikes. I am due for a new bike, and it appears I won't be getting another Enduro unless an alloy version is released in the coming months.

I would actually pay more for a ti or aluminum bike.

Spesh really needs to offer an ally version of this bike, or even an aluminium frameset (dreams are free). Their bikes are so expensive now its like they are turning in to some sort of elitist brand. nobody wants to fork out $$ for a high end carbon frame with cheap components....more

No alloy version? For real? Everyone but the wallet warriors know carbon is just a Specialized word for "Disposable".

I see carbon fiber (cough overpriced fiberglass) as a cheap alternative to any metal. I have had a few carbon bikes, and every one of them eventually got a crack. Carbon may be lighter and stiffer at first, but one rock ding in the right place is all it takes to make it turn mush.

What is the standover height for the equivalent of a large and medium?

I always fall between these 2 sizes. I am not sure how I fit in the new size scheme.

My main issue with every bike I have is the standover is too high. I hope this has been addressed now that droppers play a big role on how bikes are designed.
