The key for me was weight and utility - carbon, titanium and aluminum as needed to create a usable bike that was, at last weigh-in, around 17.3 lbs. You can lift it with one finger. This is a XC bike.
Can you use it on general singletrack? Can you take it downhilling? Frame size is 19.5 (Trek Large). You will not see another bike like this.

It looks good in the pics and in-person, but it is not brand new. The clear plastic chainguard has some cracking and someone might want to replace it. There are a couple of nicks in the top tube from a bike rack.
Everyone has their own preference and style, so there's not really any point. If you win and prefer something else, please contact me.I think that's everything.
