STRIPPED DROPOUT REPAIR

Hear ye Hear ye! If you have a carbon frame with an integrated drop out that is bent and the thread is stripped. Don’t think that you need to cast the frame aside or have a major part of the frame cut out and replaced. Have a look at this! The drop out on this Cervelo P3 was distorted out of proportion. The first pic shows it straightened out but clearly no mech will hang in that stripped hole. The last picture shows our neat and quick replacement insert still solid after the hanger was aligned. I am soooo pleased we can help get some of these frames back up and riding again! I really enjoy my job 🙂

THOSE LIGHTWEIGHT CARBON DROPOUTS…

We don’t post every repair obviously but some we like to share. If your carbon dropout is worn on the skewer face then your wheel will not be centered and could possibly fall out of the frame. This is a design flaw which should include an alloy face that wears and grips better. Here is one that was not ride able until we modified and bonded in a new more improved version!
