Carbon Frame Abuse (again)

Two months ago we posted a number of videos showcasing the abilities of carbon fiber frames (here).  Our intention with these videos is to show just how strong carbon fiber is and to help dispel notions of the fragility of the material.  Personally I remember how much I babied my first carbon frame.  To this day I still panic every time I feel my wheels hit a bump in the road.  Which is why we like to post videos such as this one from  In this video the guys from Pinkbike are visiting the Santa Cruz test labs and place a number of carbon and aluminum frames through similar stress tests.  We will let the actual results speak for themselves, however the point is…you don’t need to baby your carbon.
