Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

rjones28 have you considered moving north of the border? Kingston, ON, appears to be doing just fine.

I always go for I'm a Cruiser, for the cycling content:
"When i see someone that i like
In a car or riding a bike
I'm a cruiser
I'm a cruiser
I think you are sexy and sweet
One hot date would be such a treat"

It all started with carbon fiber wheels on a carbon fiber frame (actually everything) fat tire bike. I have tried to break them. Really, truly I have. It has been futile.

So for last summer's MTB to gravel conversion the Ti frame received carbon wheels, bars, and stem. One summer and part of a winter as a commuter and zero issues.

This year, the Time is almost entirely carbon. Frame, fork, seat post, bottle cages, wheels, spokes, handlebars, almost everything. Only thing I can think of that aren't are the wheel hubs, the chain, the gears, the brakes, and the fasteners. The Time is much better than my Lynskey and the Lynskey has a lot of carbon parts on it. Carbon really is better for almost everything.

Carbon doesn't fatigue, so if it is correctly engineered and manufactured it should retain its strength. The one thing it is not as good at is point impact. Or rim brakes in the rain, but one of my rim brake Lynskey has carbon wheels because they don't seem to bend in normal use, including normal road impacts.

My guess is that if you asked the engineers you know what their bikes are made of the majority would be carbon fiber or they would be planning on switching. So for me, I an keeping my Ti bikes for winter commuters where those impacts are more likely. But really, Ti should be reserved for things like my femur implant.

I spent 10 years on recumbents for health reasons and i had a 17.5# all carbon lowracer. The seat was molded in to the frame, had carbon bars and stem, and fork of course. Only the components (DuraAce) and wheels were non carbon.
