EXPRESS SERVICE DOWNTUBE REPAIR & RESTORE

A roof rack incident has left this Wilier damaged in a highly detailed section of the downtube. The client required his bike to be repaired within 1 week if possible so he could attend a race in Europe the following week. We managed to repair, test and restore the graphics to original within a few days.

Guess which one? The other is an original finish.

COLNAGO EPS HEAD TUBE FRACTURE AND PAINT RESTORATION

It must be Colnago week for complex repairs. This frame suffered a massive head-on collision but after a full thermo scan we were able to confirm that only the head tube lugs and tube ends were damaged making it an economical repair. Lug bonded joints are always slighly more tricky to repair as you have 2 sets of repairs as opposed to only the tube intersections of a monocoque. We replaced and repaired the lugs in the traditional manner, rebonded and stress tested the frame slightly beyond the required pressures. Only once passed QC’d was it paint restored with particle specific Colnago metallic blue and flat white colours to finish the frame to perfection.

Yet another would-be-trashed bike with a safe new lease of life.

C60 COLNAGO 100% REPAIR AND RESTORE

Written off, 2 major fractures, sheered seat post at the front mech moulding and chain stay snapped in half. Can it really come back to life and retain its original value??

It sure can. Nothing can replace qualified carbon technicians and sprayers. The repairs and paint restoration are indetectable using thermographic imaging and ultrasound. No wonder Colnago want CarbonBikeRepair to do all their restoration work in the UK.

ENVE SMART SYSTEM WHEEL RESTORE

Here is another example of a wheel repair and restoration. What the pictures don’t show are the extent of the damage. This wheel hit a pavement and inflicted deep scratches into the rim and brake track all the way around as well as a small puncture hole. We also supply all the decals specific to that model so in many cases it is possible to safely repair, restore and test at a approximately 5 x less then a £1500 wheel replacement. Any issues and the customer can sent it back.

CARBON DROPOUT REPAIR

There is only one way to repair a carbon dropout and that is to replace the carbon with an injection molded part. Why? Carbon bikes are made approximately in 2 ways: Lay up for the tubes and injection moldings for the high pressure sections such as the dropouts, brake mounts, some front mech hangers. If these components are repaired in any other way they will most likely fail as the first picture shows – the 3rd attempt before sending it to us.
