Keeping bikes on the road using the Donard expertise in Carbon and Steel frame building

I regret that I am not currently taking on new carbon repair work, but if you need advice or an inspection then I will do what I can to help.

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.

Quick Inspection£20 (included in price if repair required)

Full Inspection:  £100
  • Full ultrasound inspection of frame and fork
  • Carbon fork steerer inspection
  • Internal camera inspection
  • Written report
  • Associated disassembly and reassembly for inspection

Carbon Fibre Bike Repair
Carbon Fibre Bike frame 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

General Repairs

Pricing for carbon repairs starts at £150 and depends on extent of damage, other work priced on inspection. For initial enquiries send an email to [email protected] 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)
