I was wondering what is the life-span is of an aluminum frame / carbon fork CX bike if used for racing. I got my bike in 2008 and started racing in 2009 - so this will be my third season. I use it for road riding too - though I wouldn't say I put on too many miles on the road.
I'm 190 lbs too.
I've read on other cycling posts that an aluminium road bike frame would last about 5 years or so - which seems a lot less than I would expect. If that's true - god only knows what a CX bike would be?
Any thoughts on this?
