CAN A MANUFACTURER REPAIR A BIKE?

Consider this – If you damaged your car door, and you have to repair it, who is best skilled to do the job?

The manufacturer uses machinery, materials and automation processes to construct an entire component, however the repairer is skilled to remove damage and restore utilising totally different tools and skills for the job.

In carbon it is much the same, bikes are manufactured using a variety of machinery to mould semi-complete components which require assembly as well as inspect for manufacture anomalies. The repairer is equiped to identify fracture anomalies, largely not experienced by the manufacturer. The repairer utilises a variety of diagnostics and localised repair processes, again, uncommon to the manufacturer.

The two skill sets are unrelated and should not be confused with each other.

CARBON BIKE REPAIR SALVAGE

Apart from the environmental aspect of needless waste, you can see just from a short period how many carbon bikes, some exceptionally expensive, are written-off through myth or demand.

Looking at this pile in our stores, it would be conceivable to assume that at least 70% of these frames and forks could be out giving someone great cycling pleasure. We have a salvage buying programme if anyone would like to have one of these bikes repaired for a fraction of the cost of a replacement. They all come with limited lifetime warranties so call with your size and your preference and we can look for you.

Despite the lifetime warranties provided by many manufacturers, it is still the case that if your claim is out-of-warranty then you still need to replace at your cost.
