Here is a cross section of repairs we consider to be complex where the structure, at one location, is under huge load.
Cyclist’s will know what they are looking at here, some might even wince at the thought of failure in such areas. However, as carbon repair engineers we know how to repair these parts safely but we also know how not to ‘over-repair.’
An over-strengthened’ repair can run the risk of weakening another part of the frame. Repairs must only be made to the specification set out for that frame.
Pic 1 shows an example of a ‘tough’ repair (blue arrows) which can withstand a reoccurring impact only affecting the original carbon (red arrow).
