Proud Owner

Owner of brandy-new carbon fiber road racing bicycle: "I hit a pothole when I was riding fast and it made this CRACK noise."

Examining bike: "I can't see anything. It seems to ride fine... I love this bike. It's probably fine."

Yeah, man. I'm sure it's fine. Just stay behind me, okay?

I'm too critical of the tech-weenies. I've toyed with the idea of a carbon fiber bike myself. But those warning labels make it sound like you have the choice between starving to death in orbit or burning to death in reentry if a few heat shield tiles get damaged.

And the engine hasn't been redesigned in thousands of years.
