    FD clamp and protecting carbon frames

    Are there any precautions that should be taken when mounting a d band on FD to a carbon frame? The same with brakes?

    Most carbon frames, at least more modern ones, use a braze on FD. Older lugged carbon frames like Specialized and Trek used conventional band clamps. Just be wary over over tightening and you'll be fine. Brakes install just like any other frame.

    Mebane, NC? Small world, got a bunch of cousins down there. My uncle used to own a lumber company in town.

    It is a lugged carbon frame, my main concern is to avoid marring the frame from at areas the metal and carbon contact.

    Small town also, although there are plenty of country roads ripe for riding
