I have an aluminum bike Canondale and a carbon bike.
I crashed on sidewalk with Canondale so I know its fragile.
I read carbon is not this fragile. My carbon bike is more expensive.
Which should I race with?

BTW how would lightweight steel or titanium compare?

Carbon can be repaired, just ask Calfee. Especially carbon frames made from individual tubes.

??? So did you destroy the Cannondale when you crashed?

Sorry to break this to you, but most bikes would get damaged if they were crashed against a sidewalk. Race the bike that you wouldn't mind destroying completely in a crash. Don't worry about the material so much.

I hate this thread. It makes zero sense. Get the cannondale checked out, and go from there.

The replies make sense, but the OP's initial post is definitely hard to follow.
