I am skeptical of carbon in the used market. My friend's carbon steerer tube just snapped of a few days ago. Wasn't hurt, but it was a hellava shock. Couldn't figure out why is cracked off because the bike is in excellent condition and is only 5 years old. Then he tells me of a crash he had a year and a half ago...went for a nice tumble down the road. Bike displayed no signs of any damage and had ridden fine for 18 months. The point is, you have no clue as to what events a used machine has experienced, and it ain't worth the risk to find out one of the experiences was a bad one.
