Oldest CF bike you own and still ride?

So I just read the "Danger of carbon fiber bikes" thread with a bit of skepticism and curiosity- got me wondering how many are still riding older CF frames? My oldest is a 2008 Cervelo R3- and yes I do routinely inspect the frame.

If we're including CF forks then I also have a 2002 steel frame Cervelo Prodigy with the original CF fork.

2006 Trek 5000. Getting close to 20k miles on the original frame and fork. Still perfect. It shares time with two other bikes, but it's still a great ride.

2003 Giant TCR Composite Team ONCE. I bought this used in 2008, have totally rebuilt it since, and still use it as my primary road rig. I know, I know, posting non-drive side photos is a heinous crime, but here you go...

I have two 1993 Zipp2001's the one painted is set-up as TT bike with over 63,000 miles and I'm on it every week. The other non-painted is set-up as a SS and has over 21,000 miles. I haven't updated my mileage log since 2014 so those are rough numbers.
