I'm also into biking, mountain and road,
these bike are now totaly carbon. my mountain bike is all carbon, except the rear triangle. the onroad bike's are the same including, components.
although my onroad rc car is plastice, tao5r. except for the chassis stiffeners and suspension pieces.
everything is carbon now days.
I can live without it, I have before. all steel bikes, all alloy components fiberglass rc cars, athletic shoes with fiberglass stiffeners. etc...
but is shore looks nice. maybe the cabon sticker sheets will sell well.
