/n/ subtopic crosspost: carbon fiber! i'm sure it is relevant to every form of transportation
i'm kinda eager to see how this turns out
i don't much care for carbon bikes but i do believe the carbonfags who say carbon frame repair is a fundamentally simple, if delicate, proposition. i have really been praying for the 787 because composites are fucking cool and i think the worries about the 787 are overblown. nobody will ever do cool shit if we freak out over the teething pains of every new technology.
my interest in carbon mostly stems from cars, where i think it's infeasible on a large scale due to the nature of auto chassis and accidents...but who am i to say where the technology will be in a few decades? i'd love a lighter car, lighter bike, lighter airliner.
