We recently received this bike with a top fracture. It did not take long to discover that a previous repair had taken place.
We recognise the repairer’s work in this case. What’s the fuss? Remember how I always bang on about symmetry and repairs which meet the specifications of the surrounding material, well when we find that the repair is thicker then the surrounding material this occurs.
Why? Because the frame is designed to specifically respond to the flexing and movements subjected to it. When you stop this from happening then this occurs. You notice the original carbon has cracked on the edge of the repair.
