Many riders choose a carbon bicycle because of its lightweight caarbon firber frame, which makes for easier toting, climbing and control while on trail, road or course. However, carbon fiber bikes cost more than an average bike and can be less durable than their metal counterparts. That leads to a problem for many cyclists because a damaged carbon bike frame could mean spending big bucks to repair to avoid losing it to the garbage pile.
1. Prepare the damaged area for work. Use sandpaper to remove any pieces of fiberglass exposed because of damage as well as removing anything else that could prevent a patch adhering on the frame, such as decals or dirt. Apply filler putty to the damaged area or hole in the frame. Allow the putty to dry.
