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.

Maintenance Course at Carbon Bike Technics

My name is Julie and I look after the office side of things here at Carbon Bike Technics. I started to get into Cycling the beginning of last year and quickly got the bug, however as a lady rider I have not got a lot of faith in being able to change an inner tube or any maintanence on the roadside. The lads here have taught me everything i need to know but as I have never had to do it on a ride out as yet, it plays in the back of my mind and perhaps prevents me from going to far away from home alone in case I cannot sort it myself. My question many lady riders out there feel like I do? would you be interested in attending a ladies only maintenance course here at Carbon Bike Technics?
