1. How to care for carbon frame?
(1) Park or store the carbon frame in a manner that minimizes pressure on the frame tubing. Clamps and straps used in repair stands and bike crack composite tubing if tightened too much.
(2) Clean the frame regularly. Washing the bike keeps the protective surface paint clean while also allowing for the inspection of any cracks or fractures in the carbon. Washing the bike removes salt caused by sweat, which can have a corrosive effect on aluminum parts attached to the carbon frame.
(3) Avoid leaving the carbon bike in excessively hot temperatures, such as might be found inside a parked car on a summer day. Too much heat can weaken the carbon composite material.
(4) Study the owner’s manual to lean the bicycle’s various recommended torque values. Overtightening of bolts can crush delicate carbon fibers and cause the bike to crack. Along with proper torque values, a torque wrench can be used to ensure proper tightening procedures.
