I've had the same experience with aluminum. It fatigues to failure and even publicized as having a finite lifespan. Once it goes, it is not easily repairable \(or at all\) so then you need to buy a new frame and then you're probably past the price of carbon. Carbon is much easier to repair and today's frames can take a lot of impact- probably just as much as aluminum \(or even more - see SC video\). Seems that carbon is more often the winner in both financial and possibly environmental terms \(provided it's not a warranty trasher\) when/if the frame does break.
