[quote="PJM":3jun059s]Is all carbon created equal? I’m almost skeptical of the quality on the Giant frame considering the price point.

Guess who makes most of the carbon frames in the world …[/quote:3jun059s]

Well I’m guessing you’re going to tell me Giant?
That doesn’t necessarily mean quality though. I know Giant makes some great stuff, but at $1800 for a complete carbon bike is unheard of (to me at least). It’s such an aggressive price point that I wonder if they cut corners or have a "budget" carbon frame. I’m hoping someone tells me otherwise and this bike is a no-brainer!
