Unless the bike is on display in your living room, stay away from CF sturctural components. Especially wheels, handlebars and brake levers.
Oh man, I hope not! I read that e-bay ad and thought StepToe was just showing them.Gladio said:PS: Sorry for bastardizing this For Sale thread. Step Toe are you selling these wheels? Are you Martin from MotoWheels?
I did, and it took mine like 5 months.luvtolean said:Oh man, I hope not! I read that e-bay ad and thought StepToe was just showing them.
Heh, I'd planned to order my wheels from MotoWheels when the time came too. I wonder if it's going to take a few extra weeks? :toothless
Nice place there, Steve! I wouldn't be too worry, just keep an eye on the wheels.sgcullen said:Well, now I'm thoroughly freaked out about my CF wheels. I did get the DOT rated ones, if that makes any difference to their durability. Having just crashed my Yamaha Raptor 700R quad yesterday (you can see the cool video of it at www.cullenaz.com), I am not looking forward to another get off any time soon. :bash:
I said it was anecdotal. What's interesting about your post is that WERA is allowing them, didn't know that.ARCHILLE said:However, I am very wary of people opinions based on anecdotal stories from this and that. Everyone is entitle to his/her opinion and I can certainly respect that, afterall, it's your money to spend wherever you wish. It just get my blood boils, when people push their opinions as facts.
Tell that to "tornado bait" in the thread I posted who just beat the hell out of bike and body when his snapped off.ARCHILLE said:If you ever handle one, you will understand why a properly made CF handlebar is very unlikely to fail.

I am not trying to tell you whether you should or shouldn't use it, luv. What I am telling you is my experience with them. There are failures in everything in life and circumstances conspire to increase the likely-hood of such events.Tell that to "tornado bait" in the thread I posted who just beat the hell out of bike and body when his snapped off.
