On a scale of one to completely shagged, how bad is this crack in my frame? The top of the rear left wheel stay is soft with carbon sticking out and the rear wheel moves offline dragging against the brakes. It seems broken through. I've never had a broken carbon frame before and immediately looked at whether repairs can be done. Apparently so, but does anyone have an idea of what this would cost to repair?
I have identified atlantic-boulevard.co.uk in Bury and targetcomposites.co.uk in Cheshire as possible CF specialists. Does anyone know of other good carbon specialists in or around Manchester?
What are your experiences of carbon repairs? Are they costly, can you trust them or was it the deathknell for your bike? I am imaging the weeks ahead without my bike and have to stop myself immediately looking online for a replacement.
