These feather-light frames don’t weigh as much as the water bottle it carries. If you add a full water bottle to the frame, you have in effect doubled it’s weight.
This is why these bikes have dominated the Tour de France for the last 20 years or so. Lighter bike frames means a faster bike. It’s really that simple.
I an going to give you several sources so you can learn everything you need to know if you are looking into ownership of a carbon fiber bike or bike frame.
It will cover everything from how the fiber itself is made all the way up to quality of the carbon fibers, to engineering, how it’s made , who makes it (a real surprise to me), and much more.
I’ll even throw in a surprise about the total differences in weight between other bikes and materials used.
