Carbon Bikes in the NYT

As Technology Makes Bicycles Lighter and Faster, It’s the Cyclists Falling Harder by Ian Austen

Manufacturers do honor warranty claims on carbon frames that fail witout accident. I process them.

But most carbon frames fail by accident.

Carbon frames make a particularly poor choice off road. Had a guy in the shop today who hit a boulder with his bike. Now he needs a new frame.

Only racers benefit from carbon frames.
