As usual like most BF posters, did the research after placing the order, and the order has been shipped. Cant return the order either.
So, reading archived posts here show that many do NOT trust CF for stems and posts? BUT lots of those posts are 2005-6 etc. Whats the current take on it?
I'm about 78kg, and just ordered a Ritchey CF post and stem and the torque wrench. Should I sack them and stick to alloy?
Logic tells me that if they use CF in airplanes, bikes are probably completely safe with CF parts but reading some stories has given me the jitters.
This is for my new build that is just getting ready.
Edit; Admitting up front that I bought them for the bling factor
