Personally? None. I'm all for carbon fiber headset spacers, don't get me wrong. But I had one friend snap his bars in half, and another broke his seatpost. Then I read about situations like the aforementioned bike getting knocked over in a house, and the frame cracking. It doesn't really matter how unlikely that is, it's still not acceptable to me. Failures aside, I'm not willing to pay the premium for carbon fiber.
