Unlike other repairers who may use fillers to patch up holes in bikes, at Carbon Steed we use only carbon fibre for our carbon repairs. You are putting your trust in our repair, so you deserve to know that the repair is done to the same specifications of carbon fibre and lay-up application that was done on your frame when it was manufactured.
It pays to get a quotation for your broken frame, whether it is a stone chip, cracked chain-stay or you had a full on accident – the repair of your bike could sit well within an acceptable repair budget. If the cost of the repair is likely to come close to the cost of a new frame we will advise this also – allowing you to make a valid judgement on the direction you take with your bike frame.
Below is a typical repair of a down tube of a bike that has hit a garage whilst on a roof carrier. The damage has been removed and there now is a hole in each side of the down tube.
The repairs that we do at Carbon Steed best match the original weave and layup of the frame adding no measurable weight increase, and will not alter the ride of your bike.
