I can't buy it. the majority of content is due to crashes. if you hit a car with a bike, it doesn't matter what the bike is made of, chances are, you're going to get hurt and the bike is going to be ruined. broken is broken, ruined is ruined, unrideable is unrideable. thousands of riders ride hundreds of thousands of carbon fiber products every day with no issue. Lockheed makes $200 million fighter jets that withstand 10 Gs at mach 4 out of carbon fiber. it's good stuff.

Sad to see it go, but in this instance the holder of gear changer was tightened too high.

You can see many of so called "carbon fibre" mistakes here..
