I read that many producers use it (likes Pinarello Prince)
but they give only 1 year warranty? What is the durability
of frames with carbon seat stays?
Thanks

How could anybody predict the "durability" of a frame material? Durability has as much to do with how the frame is designed and welded as anything. Same goes for bonded carbon seat stays. Durabilty depends on both the design of the joint and how well a particular manufacturer does the bonding.

If durability is your main concern, perhaps you should buy something that has a longer warranty. Personally I'd buy any of the top brands and wouldn't give the warranty a second thought. I haven't needed warranty service even once in the last 20 years.
