From what I read, carbon fiber is very strong but not as springy as steel. It can also get brittle in cold weather, I believe. I seem to remember watching a TV program about a guy looking to set a downhill bicycle speed record on a carbon fiber racing bike. He made his attempt during cold weather. The resulting crack-up put him in the hospital. I'm still making up my mind about carbon fiber bikes.

"There is nothing wrong with wanting a motorbike that is an extension of your personal taste and fashion sense; if you must ride somewhere, I say do it with style!"
