What does a repair cost?
Short answer: it depends. In any case, it's less expensive than a new frame or even crash replacement pricing. Long answer: Every repair is fully customized with the layup pattern, the amount of damage and refinishing options. Send us a note with photos and your requests and we can get you a quote.
What will my frame look like?
Depending on your cosmetic finishing requests it can Vary. We can usually match cosmetic weave patterns on frames. The damaged area will slightly increase in diameter but the edges will be tapered and smooth. Paint and Decal restoration is available upon request.
What will my frame ride like and is it strong?
You shouldn't notice any difference in ride quality. We match the layup pattern of the frame before the damage to match the mechanical properties of the frame. The Frame will be as strong as new when the repair is complete. Some other repair services market their repairs as being stronger than new. While this sounds like a good thing, making a frame stronger in one area can create stress concentrations which can cause premature failure in other areas.
Will my frame weigh more?
In most cases your frame will gain a few additional grams of weight but nothing noticeable By any means.
