Pinarello Dogma - Handlebar damage

Today we received this lovely Pinarello Dogma Carbon frame which had a very unfortunate accident, the handlebars came round and crashed into the top tube.
This is quite a common type of accident and we can normally repair this kind of damage.
However we always need to see the frame first hand to make sure a safe repair can be made (safety always comes first.)

People often ask: 

Will the repair be strong? ........Yes it will be strong and perfectly fit for use. In fact it may even be stronger than before.

Will you be able to tell it has been repaired?...... If you have just a repair option then the repair will be left smooth and black with the carbon weave showing. 

Although most customers prefer to have the repair repainted. We can match up the colours by eye as the RAL numbers are not available (the manufacturer's keep this a secret!)so with some weird and wonderful colours it is as close as we can get it. We can also replace most decals, however small fine print graphics are very expensive to have made so it is normally just the large manufacture names. It will be hard to tell where the damage was.

Is there a warranty?........ Yes we provide a 12 month warranty on repair failure this does not include the repair breaking through accidental damage.

We have shown you the before pictures for now and we will update with the repair and then the finished article.
