Interesting read but I think this carbon fiber fad thing is coming to and end
I think the era of plastic bikes is just getting started. I am a traditionalist but appreciate the value of the newer material, the frames are extremely light, the materials can be sculpted into great shapes and its performance is exceptional. Plastic is here to stay!!!

To an answer of my "Why" question:
Other than wishful thinking, I've got nothing
And this conclusion:
I am not aware of any new wonder material muscling in on CF's turf. We will be stuck with the stuff for a while.
... in a matter of hours?

So, CF is going, going... totally here to stay.

Copy that red leader. :thumbsup:

Maybe in 30 years CF nostalgia enthusiasts will be lamenting whatever new material replaced CF

I'd love to know the why behind the statement. Do tell!

I don't go for steel myself but I sure wouldn't want the option of steel to go away.
I thought it was clear that my post was tongue in cheek. I'm a steel aficionado but I also have a soulless plastic bike and a Ti one so I'm at least slightly open-minded

whatever happened to the graphene stuff, wasn't that supposed to take over (replacing carbon fiber with ever so slightly different carbon fiber)
