James huang took a look at 2006 bikes from Specialized in the Tech News section. Here's the best part:

The new S-Works Carbon HT uses full carbon construction with bonded aluminum hard points. The new frame materials and rear suspension assemblies result in dramatic weight savings across the board but also tremendous increases in torsional and lateral rigidity, drivetrain efficiency, and vertical compliance as compared to their aluminum forebears. In a nutshell, think lighter, faster, more efficient, and more comfortable. The new S-Works Carbon Epic frame weighs in at 2300g; the S-Works Carbon Stumpjumper FSR comes in at 2450g; and the S-Works Carbon HT is a road bike-like 1100g (all weights for medium size frames with paint and shocks where applicable).
