I don't trust a CF frame either. I get a bike I love, I want it to last me many years. Unless wrecked or badly abused or stolen, I keep my bikes for years, and choose carefully. I have ridden bikes I like through 2 or 3 drivetrains, through mileage and sheer use. And maintained well. I trust CF in other applications, but on bikes, and bike wheels I tend to remain conservative. I am no weight weenie, I value a balance between weight, and reliability.
