This is my first year on a Carbon bike. It does not need to cost an arm and a leg to have a good one. I picked up a barely used Cannondale Supersix Evo High Mod frameset for $450. I had most everything to build it up in my parts bin. I check it over before each ride. I tell myself that in today`s environment, if Carbon bikes were failing catastrophically, the manufacturers would be out of business from all of the law suits. I see way more Carbon fiber being rode hard than I do vintage steel. Mostly old guys like me riding vintage, only going slow.

I was talked into buying and building the frame by a few different people that said "don`t knock it until you try it". Well I am not knocking it anymore. Do I need it? No! I really only need a Huffy if I went by need. The bike is fun to ride. Smoother than any steel I have owned and handles better too. It really feels like a SUPER BIKE! I really wanted to hate it but I can`t.
