    Poor dog that eats out of that....when that CF finally explodes, it'll probably kill the critter.

    Slap some Cervelo stickers on them and they'd sell like wildfire.

    Eh, don't worry, they'll show up in Big Lots or someplace like that soon enough.

    Now, if she'd made them as cereal bowls - they would have sold like hotcakes. lol

    If you put the Cervelo stickers on it, then ya gotta figure out how to route the cables. And think if you are indeed too fat for this sport.

    I remember when I was really young that my parents would bribe me to eat with some sort of character in the bottom of the bowl.

    There is no way 600 dog bowls tied up the world supply of carbon fiber.
    That was due to the US military building the F22 or some such.

    my dog would have gotten cancer from all the carbon fiber shards it would eat from chewing on that carbon fiber bowl.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Yeah really. 600 dog bowls, unless they're hundreds of layers thick, can't be more than... 50 bikes or so.

    It's probably a misinterpreted quote. The person likely bought the CF when the market was tied up (with the F22 and 787), which other CF using manufacturers thought was a frivolous waste of hard-to-get CF.

    It would increase your self loathing if it had Trek or Specialized stickers on it. Just sayin.

    The Boeing 787 is the most likely candidate. Boeing locked in contracts for a very significant fraction of the world's production of carbon fiber several years ago for that aircraft. Even the 777, which has been in production for about a decade now, uses several tons of carbon fiber in its construction.

    As I understand it, the market has eased up now, partially because manufacturing capacity has caught up, and partially because Boeing and Airbus are behind schedule in building their newest, most carbon-reliant jets.

    I can hardly think of a more hopeless material to make dog bowls out of.

    The light weight is a liability because the dog is going to scoot it all over the place just trying to eat out of it. Washability/durability is an issue, and I suspect the material will be too porous after the bowl is used for awhile. And it's going to look like heck after the dog chews it up even if we ignore that eating carbon fiber just has to be dangerous.

    Ceramic is the best material to make dog bowls out of, but stainless steel is not bad. If you need light weight, plastic would be a better way to go. It will prove more resilient to the abuse the dog will dole out and not represent a threat when ingested. Plus, it's cheaper.

    Those who need a fancy looking dog bowl would be better served by a crystal punch bowl or candy dish depending on size of dog. Ceramic is still better because it's not so sharp when it breaks...

    It appears that the part you actually lift is not CF. What's with that? You'd think that would be the most important part to have as light as possible.

    If they ever remake "Breaking Away," whoever plays dave stoller can feed his cat from that once the Team CSC stickers go on. ....will Jens Voigt throw a c02 cartridge at the new Dave's head to foil him in the road race scene? (no more frame pumps or 36-spoke wheels )
