Does anyone have any experience of cheap carbon being bad, or not being as good as ally at a similar price point? I've heard the line trotted out but never seen anything concrete to back it up.
No direct comparison to speak of and probably a bit raw since I've only just returned from seeing the carbon repair guy, but...
My Planet-X had developed a split in the BB shell, probably just outside of the warranty period. I put it down to a lacquer crack and carried on riding it (for about a year).
Guy checked the frame over this morning on an unrelated repair (accident on my part, but asked him to look at both since I was there) and managed to put his stanley blade straight through it with seemingly no effort.
Could have happened to a £2k frame I suppose, but it's left me wary about buying cheap next time.
