This^ .. I think carbon over a frame is tacky and looks . I have no clue why people do this other than to blow $$ and say 'hey bro.. my sh*ts unique'.

I've crashed three times on track this year. CF on frame and swing arm saved them from any scratches. Maybe not directly functional, but on The track bike it's a must!!
