That is not much of a test of robustness. Not meaning to Richard swing, I'll have done almost 500km this week by Sunday (albeit on two different bikes and if all goes to plan). Not common for me, but I did this weekly distance 3 or 4 times last year.
Yeah I know it's not gone that far but I can't exactly talk about the durability over 10000km if I've only gone 500
For what it's worth some people have reported back on roadbike review that have gone a few thousand miles on their chinese carbon bikes without issue, but as I said I can't confirm that in my case without having the bike for longer.
