This video shows how I repaired my Specialized S-Works Tarmac cracked frame. Total work time involved? Around 3 hours (not counting re-assembly). Most of the time will be spent sanding.
Some carbon repair shops specialize in repairing and refinishing carbon frames. But based on the pricing I’ve seen, a professional repair on my cracked Specialized S-Works frame would cost over $400. That’s too much for me. Plus, I wanted to see how easy it would be to complete a DIY repair.
