    are carbon forks any more brittle in the cold?

    is there any increased risk of failure due to riding a carbon fork in temps of 32 degrees or lower?
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting

    I bought my FUJI Newest 1.0 in 2009.
    Alu frame and carbon forks, been riding
    it in winters from day one till this summer
    when I sold it. No issues with the fork;
    cold, salt, wet, etc.
