Why carbon? Though its light its very fragile

The difference in weight isn't enormous, but the difference in durability is

Buying cheapo carbon bars and seatposts is mental.


Any slight imperfections in the weave (which 99% of cheap carbon bits have) makes them weak and prone to snapping

Tighten up your carbon seatpost too much and it'll snap

Tighten your shifters/brakes up too much and the bars will snap

Use fairy liquid to re-fit your grips and cheap carbon will soak it up and the bars will snap


Don't get me wrong, carbon fibre is an amazing material, but only in certain applications

thanks for that so would you recommend replacing an aluminum seatpost with the carbon one recently posted?

Apart from looking better apparently it'll absorb some of the shocks making it more comfortable

Only if its of very good quality - £70/£80+

I'd rather have a stiff ride than a cheapo carbon seatpost flexing about under my nether-regions :)

Having worked in the cycle industry for a couple of years, i'd have to say opinion is divided on the use of carbon. Personally i don't use it and don't plan to
