Please keep in mind that I ride carbon and love carbon... but... This is one of the areas that I hope is addressed in the design. Something as simple as a stick getting kicked up into the wheel the way you describe should not be enough to destroy the entire frame. I don't know what the solutions is, but I know if I lost a frame that way, I'd be hard pressed to go with full carbon again... unless I won the lottery and had money to burn. Hope is frame is not toast. Nice of you to stop and offer help. On behalf of all of us cyclist who have been stranded, it's guys like you that make me feel good about calling myself a cyclist.
