You should just replace it if it is three years old and has broke. It that part broke it means the reast might not be holding up too well either. Unless it is a $100+ aero helmet, just get a new...

On a very slight downhill, I've pedaled up to ~36

On a steady downhill - ~40

On a steep and short, straight downhill - 48 for a few seconds, but well over 45 for a good part of the downhill.

Bamboo is the least of your concerns. You need the carbon fiber and the proper skill to use it and all the machines to make the rest of the frame. I'd imagine this took a ton of work.

Don't worry about carbon. Just check it for stress cracks and do the "tap test" and if all is well, carry on.

No tire if properly seated on the rim should "blow out" as long as it is a respectable tire. If you want the best cornering and grip go for a race tire like Michelin...
