If you use threaded rod you absolutely must sleeve it, just find some carbon rod and slip it over then epoxy or jb weld the ends so its stays put and only leaves a half inch or thread each end.
All Thread is very weak without support.
My local bicycle shop had ends that fit over the carbon to stop splitting or you can find some thin aluminum tube to use to put a small ring over the ends.
