Today is Carbon Sunday, the govt introduced the so called "carbon tax"
One of my friends raised some good points
1.Consider the environmental impact of a custom steel frame - locally built, 20 years+ lifetime, easily repairable, against a carbon frame that is seen as 'disposable' after say 5 years. That's a big part of the reason I went back to steel.
2.Carbon fibre manufacture is high emission. Higher than any other material used for bicycle construction, taking into account the materials life cycle.
Thoughts, would we see the price of carbon frames and components increased?
