Carbon Fibre Frame Repairs


Recommended Posts

Bought a piece of land next to the road this past weekend. Ouch

No damage to body or bike other than a nasty scratch on my Scott CR1. Cry


On inspection it does not look like the frame has been compromised, but how do I get my baby nice 'n shiny again?? (The scratch is too deep to just buff out).


Anybody have some ideas on where to get this sorted (in the W/Cape)?

Hi Attiec


If the damage is purely cosmetic, you can build up the scratch with several layers of clear or black lacquer/enamel.   You should be able to get something from a model shop.


If you want something more professional ask at your LBS or contact Peter Wheeler at icycling as he does a lot of work with carbon fibre, and he may be able to help you.

BM, Thanks. Been in touch with Peter and it seems they can help. Now I only need to find a day or two when I can live without my baby!
