In short yes. Carbon frames can be repaired to a degree, and most frame damage can be repaired, but major damage such as a smashed top tube cannot be repired invisibly, as extra carbon will be required to strengthen the wall.
We do not repair group sets that are broken. However scuffs can be dealt with.
How ever - we do not repair carbon breaking surfaces on wheels, we also stay clear of fixing Carbon Stems or Seat Posts, I know it sounds like we do not fix some of the things you are breaking, but come on you have to be safe
No, but if you can get a replacement we can fit it
All repairs can never get a part back to factory specification exactly as you've already broken the fibres,but a repair is as good as can be in that all Carbon componants are made of over lapped layers held together only by the epoxy within the carbon weave,so your bike is basicly held together by resin and adhesive which are the tools we use in repairing your Carbon pride and joy
Easy answer is no....once you get past the laquer,paint and undercoats you hit the Carbon and paint goes in between the weave in the carbon so you simply can't get between the 'grain' in the weave ,so bits will allways show,...besides no painter wants to spend days rubbing down a frame in Carbon because thats how long it would take to that carefull...And depending on which frame you've got they are painted for a reason.
New for 2012, Yes we do.
Simply strip it down to a frame and forks put it in a box and bubble wrap it or similar with a sprag in the forks and rear stays, then post it to me with ALL personal return details in the box, I find Parcel Force as easy and fast as any one at your local Post office.
Or if you like just pop down to see me and i'll put the kettle on for a chat about pride and joy.
I really tried to be very helpful here, I gave a few rules of thumb idea's, but due to some individuals trying to abuse my help, I'm going back to giving estimates when I see the bike,
Dont clamp your pride and joy that has probably cost close to three months wages to your roof rack by the down tube even if it is gently holding it, Carbon frames are not designed to be held my there and have 70mph wind drag around it on a motorway..IT WILL BREAK
Don't put your pride and joy on a roof rack at all especially if your going into a car park with height restrictions....it does happen.
If you dont have enough room on the back seat for your pride and joy because the partner's coming along as well, leave them behind, there is a bucket load of stuff to do near us, so plan a day out.
If you have an alloy seat post in a Carbon frame take it out regularly as they do stick and when they do it wont come out, same goes for Carbon posts in a carbon frame with a alloy insert.
Not really as it would render the frame unsafe. The odd sniper hole can be repaired however.
With lots of care and attention, following years of experiance in motorsport and aerospace. We only use Bi-Axial UD Carbon for large repairs and the best epoxy resins available along with high performance adhesives.
