Default Re: Um, Yeah I'm pretty excited.

Steel, aluminum... they each got their problems.
Steel tube can rust and scale internally and just collapse unexpectedly in use, or crack at welds.

Well, it's made the mainstream news recently where entire fleets of aircraft have been grounded for inspection because aluminum can suffer from catastrophic failure because of metal fatigue.

I have no specific source, but it's easy enough to search the info down.

lol One day there's gonna be a buncha carbon fiber bikes on the streets with some ugly lookin patches on em! lol
