In the latest edition of Cycle Sport, Cycling iQ explores carbon fibre and investigates how this now-ubiquitous material is used (and occasionally misused) in the bicycle industry.
Carbon fibre has been in mainstream use by the sporting goods industry for almost three decades now but how much do consumers really know about it? What are the potential pitfalls in buying a bicycle made from the black stuff and are we really using the right language when we talk about ‘carbon’ bicycles?
If you’re interested in learning more, copies of Cycle Sport are fortunately fairly easy to locate throughout Europe and also in many english-speaking countries throughout the world. Otherwise the May 2016 edition is also available from the iTunes store and Zinio.
