Originally setup in response to insurance firms looking for a cheaper alternative to complete bike replacement, Cycles Perfecta has extended its carbon repair service to the cycling trade.
“We must be the only people in the UK capable of repairing even Uni-Directional carbon layups,” says owner Phil Dempsey. “We’re soon to recruit someone to handle this side of our business full time, such is the demand for repairs to carbon.”
The process is simple, if you know what you’re doing, explains Dempsey.
“Carbon repair is all about angles. UD for example is only strong in one direction, so it’s essential to know what you’re looking at. Thankfully we have all of the equipment here to repair even complete separations. The only things we’d advise against sending in is breaks in high stress areas, unfortunately some things are a write off.”
Look out for a full interview with the firm tomorrow on CI.N.
