That was the guideline bandied about by all the bike mags, but it seems that it had more to do with improper manufacturing procedures back in the day rather than fatigue life. Seems that so long as your using components/frames from a reputable manufacturer that knows their stuff that the current thinking is that your carbon parts should far out last the equivalent aluminum parts.

Your handlebars probably were a failure waiting to happen from the day you bought them, not because you'd been using them for so long. Sorry for regurgitating false info that I thought had come from reliable sources.

well, any part is bound to fail sooner or later. The Answer Hyperlite bar and matching bar-ends I put on after the Kestrel bar (a pioneer in CF bikes by the way) lasted all of two weeks before taco'ing against a tree (my fault, not the theirs).

Yeah, crashing into a tree can hardly be called a "failure" on the part of the bars!



All of this aside, mine has a five year old LP Composites bar on it.

Some exciting hardtails coming from Cannondale.

- 19.5lb 29er, carbon frame, X.0 bits, carbon lefty, "Flash 29er", a hair over the current F29er 1 pricing.
- 16.5lb 26" hardtail, "Flash Ultimate", $10k+

I wish they'd build a goddamned 1x9 Lefty version. It's all 27sp or single. Seems like a silly product lineup

27Sp is easily converted to 1x9

Does anyone really sell 1x9? The Scalpel and other aggressive XC bikes come w/ 2x9, but I don't see many 1x9 out of the box.

Yes.. it's money. I've taken a few steep 6' drops and it soaks it up like butter.

yeah it's on the right leg. it goes from 110mm to 150mm IIRC. for most trails around here I'll set it to 110mm, but for free ride and trails with larger drops I'll really open it up.

got my Civia Hyland in today. Gorgeous, thoughtful design details and top notch parts. Thomson seatpost, stem and bars. Hydraulic disc brakes. Cable routing hidden in grooves in the frame. One downer....the generator system only powers the front headlight....the rear is a reflector. I'm sure there's a way I can get an active light and wire it in...not a priority as it's summer but if I keep up with riding to work into the fall, I'm going to want that.
