I am in the market for a new or used road bike. I have less than $1500 to spend so I am either looking at a nice brand new aluminum bike from the LBS or perhaps a used carbon bike from Ebay.
Being 250lbs, should I even consider a carbon frame? Should I stick with the more durable aluminum to avoid any potential problems? I am looking at the Felt line and have read about cracking with some of their carbon frames. Buying a used Felt also voids the frame warranty (I think).
