"Technologically, there's nothing about carbon that takes special skill to repair," says Cervélo engineer Damon Rinard. The procedure starts with removal of the damaged carbon. Next, the area surrounding the damage is sanded, tapering toward the missing fibers. New layers of carbon fabric are used to rebuild the affected area, then cured. Finally, the repair is sanded to match the original frame shape.
The greater challenge is restoring the original finish, and quality work can set better jobs apart. Typically, painted frames can be made to look close to what they did when new, for a (sometimes high) price. In other cases the repair is left unpainted, for a battle-worn look.
In most cases aero disc wheels that are scratched or punctured with holes can be restored to their original shape. We use professional finishing materials from dupont. Bikes and wheels are than re-finished with matching custom decals and paints to match original manufacturers specification.
