Good to see your using the same weave, looks messy when people mix twill with plain weave imo.

i'd be worried with a carbon swingarm Shocked

ones called Hummertastars ones carbon2wheeler.

Too much of a stress factor to use parts in that manner IMO.

It's probably why you don't really see carbon swing arms in motogp

lb for lb carbon should be stronger than a casting. In theory. But getting the fibre laid up and in the correct places to achieve the structural integrity of a 'simple' alloy casting is the pig.
High tech alloys could be as expensive as the carbon though.

If they use it on planes then it's good for a bike. Wings and fuselage are commonly made out of carbon. They don't make aeroplane undercarriage out of carbon yet. Smile
