first, sorry for all lowercase, but one hand is in a cast ;)
i'm wondering how well carbon fibre handles impacts. i had an interaction with a car today. i managed to slow down to 15mph or so before we met (they turned in front of me coming towards me). hit the back panel of the car, twisted my handlebars around etc. i'm curious about any stress that the frame might have taken (trek 5200), as well as the handlebars (deda) and the front wheel (ksyrium ssc sl). can c.f. weaken from an accident and break months later?

thanks.
