How does carbon fiber handle nuclear radiation?

I had heard that cyclists in South Korea are buying concrete bikes ready for the nuclear winter. Will my carbon framed road bike be rendered useless by the radioactive fallout? I dont want my frame to split when I hit a pothole/crater.
Most major manufacturers will honour radiation damage, though direct strikes by Chinese made nuclear war heads are no longer covered (this only applies to US brands) after Trump discovered that Chinese bike makers wont warranty Minuteman strikes on Chinese frames.
Of course, no manufacturer will cover use on a Turbo, so its good to see makers responding positively to Nuclear attack worries, will certainly help riders decide on which brands offer the best customer service.
Of course its up to the rider to avoid pot holes and craters, worth contacting your local disaster emergency committee to highlight your well founded concerns?

You could use lead paint to protect it.
