I'm working part time at a bike shop and we just got 3 Dogma F10 frames in. My goodness these things are beautiful. I keep going back and forth on getting one but I worry about crashing it. The rides I do are crash riddled these days.

Anyone riding this frame, and do you risk it on aggressive group rides?

Don't race what you can't replace.
Most "innovations" in cycling are solutions for non-existing problems.

More like "Don't ride what you can't replace".

Or have your bike insured.

No, ride away. You can't live in fear of crashing, that is just going to happen. I'm not saying be stupid about it, or anything (like, it probably isn't the best idea to wear a newish Panerai on an early-season ride with thick gravel all over, or something), but you need to live your life.

Always ride in the top 5-10 of your aggressive group rides. You might have to take more pulls. :-)

The crashes always happen in the back.

Buy yourself a titanium bike. Only thing that happens are scratches. If you "tend to crash", you shouldn't even consider a carbon frame.
If you do, buy something cheaper and beefy.

Scuse me, but what is this topic doing in the wheels section?

I thought I created this thread in the road section. I found its place in the wheel section inappropriate as well.

Mods, could you please move it to road, where it belongs?

Still lusting over this frame, btw. Haven't decided yet.

Can you get it without the diamond pattern? Only thing I'd change is that, little to "bling" for me

Or you can say this:

Life is too short to worry about anything. You had better enjoy it because the next day promises nothing.

I always get my head confuse about hearing crashes during races (yes I can understand but it seems in some area it happens so often?) but even group rides...?!?
