Composites are not immune to fatigue failures. I'm beginning to wonder if there are any materials besides steel that have a fatigue limit \(a stress value under which the material can handle unlimited cycles\). As for what they take, aluminium is strong enough \(apparently\) and light enough when designed correctly while being much, much cheaper. Which makes it good enough. Also, regarding repairing carbon, i'd personally think thoroughly as to what i would have repaired and what not. I would probably inquire about a crash replacement before anything else.
