And the mask is not a maybe, it's a definitely. That dust is lethal.

It is, just many don't realise or think it's a small amount that it won't impact. I've seen carbon repair guys not wearing them, blew my mind.

I too avoid the dust at all cost. Wet cutting is a good idea as it keeps the dust down.

However, to put things in perspective, raw carbon fibre is extremely hazardous because of the "loose" fibres. Once carbon fibre is impregnated with resin and bonded into a structure, the dust is unlikely to contain loose fibres and is far less harzardous. I would still avoid any exposure like the plague.

The Goldfields stuff is pretty much the closest stuff for me if I want to race. Happy enough to drive somewhere for good racing and good trails. It's actually the first time I've ridden the Walmer State Forest as it's close enough to Harcourt/Bendigo that I usually go there. But the trails today were really good, quite impressed. Traditional MTB single-track with a mix of rocky rooty sections and loamy natural cut. Interspersed with bits of fireroad to allow passing.
