Whats the fastest Carbon bike ... ?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

So if I buy the same bike, i'll be as fast?

Seriously, you need to step away from the keyboard and do some hill repeats.

The fastest carbon bike is one that you ride over a high cliff, just before you hit the ground.

The fastest carbon road bike is the one with the strongest engine.
