Another quote I found about bicycle carbon fiber "forks" that correlate with carbon fiber tripods and is humorous, interesting, provocative, and so very true - well, maybe not that humorous to us Americans because it is so true!
"If carbon forks are so prone to catastrophic failure, why are there no high profile carbon bike or fork class action lawsuits circulating on the Internet? In a litigious society like the U.S. (i.e. one where people frequently sue one another), at least one carbon fork manufacturer would have been sued out of existence by now. Instead, many carbon fork manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty on their forks. Just from a business standpoint, if the failure rate was high, they would go out of business."
