JUST A BAD DREAM

To have your bike returned from Carbon Bike Repair is to expect to forget anything ever occurred in the first place. Was it just a bad dream that I opened my travel bag to find the chain stay snapped on my beautiful Willier Cento1…Oh yes I forgot!

ARE YOU SERIOUS?

Very. The quality and safety of a composite repair is reflected in the standard of the facilty and the engineers. Safe and complient carbon repairs require resources and training. It takes 2 years for a repairer at CBR to achieve 2 of the 3 qualification levels available at Carbon Bike Repair. The repair ‘theater’ is […]

BE AWARE – CARBON CONDUCTS ELECTRICITY!

Recently one of our new carbon room ventilation fans burned out. Before we had our new facility with dust extraction systems, heaters and dremels would regularly burn out.

REPAIRING A CARBON RECUMBENT

We don’t often get asked to repair recumbents but this one is a super light disabled version which is clearly an expensive and hard to find bike. The structural damage affected the chasis and the safety nose cone. I am glad to say we were able to complete this as well as hide the repair […]
