Check Rudy Cabirou. Finished 10th Lourdes on SR Rux. Top 5 at first split at Fort Bill until crashing his brains out too.

I think the better quality rims out there would provide you greater longevity and crash replacement support. The layup and design can be completely different for what is an identical looking rim. Just like alloys. All look the same but some are softer ... more »

Could get Zelvy carbon wheels for less on Chris King hubs? Good enough for Kovarik.

Oh no! (@averone)It isn't the just the epoxy that holds your bike together. It is the carbon. Not sure what the fibre material is in fibre fix. But I wouldn't imagine it is carbon. Or has anywhere near the strength of carbon. Can't see the water activated ... more »

Agree, the deville is certainly better but with reliability, availability of spares and servicing means the pikes take the lead overall. Anyone want to buy some devilles?

Nice work. Be stronger and potentially lighter if you laid all the carbon layers in on hit though. What you loose in excess resin you will gain in a better bond.

They may look the same, but the research is in the layup and the mould itself. I agree though. Just making a carbon version of an alloy frame isn't realy utilising the material. If you want to see something different using carbon check out tramontane cycles.

Interesting. I wonder how much heat the fatigue tests generate on the composite frames if any, and if Specialized has accounted for it. I doubt it is much especially on the thinner walled frames
