Last week Maria was out on a ride, while clipping in, bam....slipped out of her pedal and her lady parts landed right on top of the already fragile top tube of her Specialized Ruby. Cracked.
Ive been working with carbon fiber recently, and it looked like a super simple and quick repair. The tube wasn't seperated, but there was a healthy crack right across the tube.
I sanded it done for further inspection and then wrapped some 12k tow in a 45 degree lay-up base layer, extending a couple inches on either side of the crack.
Ready to wrap
I laid the top layer of carbon in a tighter pattern to fill voids.
