Carbon forks - worth the money?

Not open for further replies.
i have a 10 year old Giant cadex mountain bike, they used carbon tubes with aluminium lugs, so any
positive effect the carbon may have were out-weighed by the harshness of the aluminium

the only carbon seatpins i have seen are short, like the Look one, for road bikes, so i wouldn't
expect any comfort gain from them....i would expect a long carbon seatpin to snap

what about spinergy wheels?
