At what point is a carbon frame to cheap? I mean is it better to have a super cheap carbon frame or a high end aluminum? It's kinda like when flat screens monitors first came out and then started offering entry level ones for under $200, people would go around saying, wow, I got a flat screen monitor for $200...yeah, but it looks like crap. Will this be true as manufacturers start offering cheaper and cheaper CF frames? For example, the low end Trek carbon fibers weigh as much or more then aluminum framed bikes, and I would bet the aluminum will be around for 20 years...bet the carbon one won't.

Why do you say a carbon fiber bike won't be around for 20 years? If you treat it well it'll last as long as any other frame material.

If a carbon frame weighs as much as an alu frame, I'd say it's a good bet it'll last a good long while. What would total the carbon frame would also total the alu one.

Delightful.
And to (or too ?) think English isn't my first language.
But then sometimes good people get stuck with bad keyboards
