    Comment: Also recalled in this were the customer’s wallets, which should have been confiscated at the time of purchase.. I made the mistake of buying an all carbon fiber MTB back in like 1998 (Cannondale Raven).. The small weight savings were completely wiped out if i simply added a Mulepack or two water bottles.. :-) Carbon Fiber is cool, but for the money, seems to be too expensive (still).. I’m waiting for an all Tungsten Carbide frame, one that you can never scratch (don’t know how heavy it’d be though)—
