Join Date: May 2008 Questions about Carbon Fiber bike?
- How well can a road bike CF do off road such as dirt and gravel. Will the high vibration wear the CF much quicker than other metals?
-Can it react to high and low temperatures?
-How Fragile is it. For example, if I take a bat and swing at it, how much will it likely break compared to say aluminum and steel?
try hitting your foot with that bat first...it wont hurt as much as the bill to get your cf frame fixed
-I'm using my CF road bike as a touring bike with replaced alloy seatpost and a clamp rack? Yes i do LONG rides. Is there anything that concerns you guys about this? How well can a CF road bike handle when used as a touring?
CF frames are great for tourig if you have a factory sponsored sag-waggon following you with 6 frames on the roof
-I weight 230 pounds and willl prob be adding more weights to the rack. How much can the CF frame hold?
