If you have a carbon frame that you thought was a write-off, get in touch at to get it back on the road

Carbon Frame damage inspection and analysis
Non-destructive testing techniques like Ultrasound scanning can be used to check the structural integrity of your frame after a crash, or to check the full extent of any damaged areas. Impacts on carbon parts can cause delamination of the underlying carbon fibre laminates and it's important to get any cracks in the paint or visible damage fully inspected.

Carbon Fibre Bike Repair
Carbon Fibre Bike frame or wheel repair involves doing a careful inspection of the damaged area, using ultrasound scanning to find any additional areas of delamination which may not be visible. Damaged carbon is then carefully removed and the affected area is rebuilt with new layers, matched to the original layup. Read a recent blog post about Frame repair

Steel Frame Repair
Damaged steel frames can be repaired and refurbished. I can also check steel frame realignment and bring it back into alignement. Additional braze-ons can be added, for example fittings for mudguards or rack-mounts

Pricing for carbon repairs starts at £100 and depends on extent of damage, other work priced on inspection. For initial enquiries send an email to with pictures of any damage.

(Some componentry may need to be removed to carry out the repair, this will incurr an additional charge, so it's better to bring a frame only where possible)
