This also leads me to another question but going to post a new thread there in General Discussion.
Absolutely, fair enough. Cost is a concern. I just wanted to point out, not just for you but also for others tracking the thread, that if something happens to a carbon frame it doesn't have to go in the trash. An aluminum frame is much more problematic to fix than carbon, steel is pretty simple.
Don't complain about the weather and cower in fear. It's all good weather. Just different.
