they are replacing fasteners with stitches, so I'm not sure that it's really going to have a significant effect on bicycle frames. An aircraft is generally put together from structural elements that are all made separately and bolted together. If you build larger assemblies, you skip a lot of fasteners. Composites generally don't work well with fasteners.
