I've moved past steel apart from my Thorn tourer, but I do have this nagging doubt (which has been well expressed above) that its what you can't see with carbon that's the problem. I can't imagine feeling confident hitting 40+mph on a twisting descent on that frame knowing the little I know about catastrophic failure modes of carbon fibre frames. So I will probably cut it up and bin it rather than see it somehow return to use. A shame but its the only decent thing to do.
Do you ave a good household insurance policy?
I'd check it out first before sawing it up.
