If somenone lighter than my 14 stones would like to have a go, you're welcome.

Most people don't seem scared of flying in modern commercial aircraft or riding in Lotus Elises. Both use bonded Aluminium.

And so do any carbon forks with Alu steerers. Of course there are dogs around where someone got the mix or cure wrong, but it's the same with badly welded frames.
