    I'm a bit confused on carbon.
    How exactly is it made? I've seen black mesh sheets coated with a resin. Is that they way all bikes are made?
    I've also heard of carbon tubes; so what happens here, they just glue them into the lugs?
    What is a monocoque frame? Orbea says they have one.
    What's the construction difference between a carbon frame on a $2500 Felt vs. a $5000 Colnago?
    What is aerospace carbon vs. plain old carbon? I'm presuming there are grades of carbon just like grades of steel.

    Any resources or links would be appreciated. Thanks,
