I donít think durability in a carbon tandem for traveling should be a consideration. Our tandem has been in the cases at least 30 times with zero issues save a few paint chips and scratches. We built our new one nude carbon so I donít even have to worry about that. We went thru every frame material on singles and ended with carbon. Would not consider any thing else on a high end tandem now. Even very nice high end Paketa tandems have reputations of hard to refinish or repair. Santanaís latest high end tandem is all carbon with a front disc brake ( a first for Bill).
