Excellent Information on Carbon in Bikes

Engineer Steve A has begun to address the questions I have raised about inspection of carbon bikes and parts. This post on his blog, DFW Point-to-Point discusses the issue of how to assess potential risk. Unfortunately, for those without ultrasound, x-ray or other imaging equipment it still comes down to what you see and what you suspect. It's still good to get a briefing from someone outside the bike industry, who has considerable experience with the material. I look forward to more.

This is worse than you claim. They make CURLING broom handles out of carbon nowadays!

Good thing blogs are not owned by the carbon companies.
