9 year old Al bike, safe?
I'm looking at a used TT bike on ebay that is 9 years old. I know/have heard that Aluminum has a fatigue life and I'm wondering if that may be an issue here. It looks like this bike was ridden, not stored in a garage for a decade, but it is a TT bike and thus maybe didn't get too much use.
Price isn't so much of an issue. Even if it's free, I don't want to buy a frame that's going to crack/break in the first few seasons that I own it.
