    I have been seriously considering a new frame(Salsa Campeon-found great deal) since my trusty Cannondale is about 10+ years old and was wondering if there is a weight limit for carbon seat stays(foul their integrity?).
    I am 5-11 and weigh 192 down from 207 and aiming for my weight of ten years ago of 179.
    Will my current weight compromise the carbon, I will probably need to keep the frame for awhile.(ball and chain)
    Thanks

    I don't know if there is any weight limit, but I've been riding a full carbon frame for 10 years. I weigh between 180 and 190 lbs and haven't broken it yet.

    Have you tried contacting Salsa? They should have a much better idea of what their frames can and can not handle than any of us.
