Re: 2nd broken frame
I watched on TV (a show called "Greatest Disasters" or "Worst Disasters" or something) as a pro cyclist was racing down the side of a mountain on a bike with a carbon fiber frame, to set some kind of record, and he somehow broke the bike. And he paid for it, and paid for it, and paid for it, as he went tumbling down. He lived. Bike didn't. And that was carbon fiber.
