The question is all above. I dont know anything about carbon fibres, except 
what everybody knows -> heatresistant, light, very strong etc....

For everybody carbon is something very simple, but charcoal is not what a 
bike is made of.

Thank you already for your answers youv'e given before.

This site is really great.


Good bye
