I'm looking for a new steed to replace my Spec Stumpy 07. Most of the bikes I'm looking at are carbon frames. My concern is how will they last. My Stumpy is 5 years old and still riding well but showing the scars of battle. I'm a heavy rider (108kg) and am have been told I'm an aggressive rider, although I don't get off the ground much. I will chuck it in rock gardens, boulder strewn decents etc and seem to regularly get strikes from pebbles/stones etc.
So will carbon last as well as my stumpy, even if it gets dropped occasionally.
