IS DIY CARBON REPAIR SAFE?

You would expect me to say no! but there are some cyclists who are quite capable of repairing a broken carbon section. There are a few points however that need to be considered:

– Industrial carbon epoxy is designed to work with carbon of which there are many variations.

– Knowing what is repairable and what not to try

– Layup thickness, if incorrect, can cause stresses on other parts of the frame

– Aesthetics

Think of it like repairing a wing on your aeroplane…you can hurt yourself so be careful and think before you try.

GUARANTEE? Def: ‘promise with certainty’

All too often here at CBR we are reminded of the serious nature of cycling. It can be a dangerous sport and our role is to make sure that we don’t release unsafe repairs. It only takes one incident as a direct result of a bad repair to remind the carbon repair industry of the risks if repairs are not correctly processed. How is this possible to avoid?

Bespoke stress test equipment is the only way to ensure the repair can withstand the rigours of it’s intended purpose. I can’t see why you would pay for a repair that can’t be confirmed. A ‘guarantee’ has to mean something when you ride your bike down Alpe d’Huez, not – ‘…if it breaks again we will guarantee to repair again!’
