I just found myself browsing the contents of a very specific, yet utterly interesting blog called Busted Carbon. It’s a photo blog about broken carbon frames and other parts and the main message seems to be that you are not going to see steel or aluminum frames snap like this.
Most of these images come with the story of pain, as people have been riding their bikes 30 miles per hour and suddenly face a critical gear failure and off they go.
The photos themselves are painful, but it’ll hit you even more when you think that most if not all of them broke while riding quite quickly. Makes you think twice before getting carbon parts.
