Nicky Hayden will leave Ducati at the end of the season wondering what might have been had the factory stuck with a carbon fibre frame for the 1000cc MotoGP era.
While its Japanese rivals have used twin spar aluminium frames for decades, Ducati entered MotoGP with its traditional steel trellis design in 2003.

Scientists have created a method of producing carbon fiber from scrap polyethylene plastic.
Thanks to research currently being conducted at the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, our unwanted plastic bags may one day be recycled into carbon fiber. Not only that, but the properties of the fibers themselves could be fine-tuned, allowing different types of carbon fiber to be created for specific applications.
The Oak Ridge team, led by materials scientist Amit Naskar, start with polyethylene-base fibers – these could conceivably come from waste plastic sources, such as shopping bags and carpet backing scraps. Using a “a multi-component melt extrusion-based fiber spinning method,” the surface contours of these fibers can be customized, and their diameter can be manipulated with submicron precision. It is also possible to control their porosity...more
The world's first carbon fiber stapler is also the worlds finest. This genuine Swingline stapler has been converted into a carbon fiber work of art. The top portion of the stapler has been skinned with a real 2x2 carbon fiber twill weave and then clear coated and buffed for maximum shine. All the carbon fiber work is done by hand in the USA, making it a must-have desk accessory for any carbon fiber enthusiast.
