New Bicycles! And banjos!
Ok, it's *almost* but not quite yet Spring and I'm not all that young anymore (am I really going to hit 58 this weekend? Yikes) but a new season is upon us and I am starting to wonder how many miles is the "life" of a modern carbon frame?
I've got my 3 or 4 year old Giant with -I don't know- 4, 5, 6000 miles on it
The roads here are not the best and the bike does take a bit of a pounding
Sometimes, running down our hills at 30 or 40 mph, I think "What would happen if this thing just fell apart... Ooooo not a good thought" Does carbon fatigue to the point of catastrophic failure? When?
Or, maybe, after a few years, I'm just ready for a new bike. Dunno. Stay tuned, I guess.
