A good read on Carbon Clinchers...

Notices
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

Informative...thanks. Upshot is...if you do a lot of high speed descending...be wary of no name knock off carbon wheels. T sub G.
Interesting that temperature is more the enemy as compared to impact resistance when hitting pot holes.
No doubt carbon wheels are here to stay tho I haven't made the transition yet.

Gives me a lot of hope for the $1K carbon clinchers floating around now.

In two years everyone running carbon wheels on the road will be on disc brakes anyway. Might as well just wait
