Hi all,

I'm sure this has been covered in another thread, so apologies in advance. I currently have a full carbon Zerofour works hp with Storck Stiletto forks. I use this bike in good weather on my 20 mile each way commute as i love riding it so much & i can't really afford to keep it as a best bike & have a back up for work. However, my head has been turned by a rather nice minx in the form of a Seven Alaris sg & i would be interested on your views advice on whether to take the plunge & swap over to Titanium, gien the possible? ltd life of carbon & imust be honest, it does sometimes get ridden in weather it shouldn't.

I have a fixed Pompino for the crap weather, but obviously speed is ltd on this & the works hp is quick !
Thanks in advance.

    as far as I'm aware, there are no major issues with lifespan on CF bikes - and there is no reason why you should not ride it in adverse weather, so long as you keep it clean and lubed like any other bike...
