Santa Cruz Swingarm

This Santa Cruz carbon swing arm came in for a repair to the drive side seat stay. 

Will has done a brilliant job on the repair. He has been with us now for nearly 3 years and his work is exceptional with an eye for perfection. 

Neil our painter matches all the paintwork by eye as the Manufacturers will not provide the Ral numbers. He does a truly amazing job. We are very proud to have these amazing young men on our team!

The pictures show before, during and after. What do you think?


During - the frame is rubbed down in preparation to be repaired
