Big waste of money IMHO. Around half the weight.. double to tenfold the price.. and a third of the structural integrity of aluminum..
The upside is that if you're a low budget cyclist, you are given a fantastic opportunity to laugh at the big spender lycra dudes.
What a load of tosh. Having worked in a bike shop I've seen tons of broken alloy and steel parts. Things fail/break - carbon isn't any worse than steel or alluminium.
I've been running a front hub motor on my front carbon fork and it's done 2500miles so far.
Nearly all carbon failures I've seen have been a result of accident/crash damage. I've seen more "random" failures in alluminium and steel parts.
