    Any ideas on repairing a major scratch ona Specialized carbon frame?

    Hey all, I sold my road bike, a Tarmac Expert to help get an S-Works Stumpjumper. As I was packing the wheels, the axle scraped the hell out of the downtube past the clearcoat and decal. Anyone know if this can be touched up or repaired?

    AAAGGGHHH!!!! Thats horrible. The first scratch should be from ride time. If its any consolation, in a couple years it'll be so banged up you wont care anyway.

    would suck if you just bought it back. I would show whoever bought it and just offer a coulple hundred bucks back.

    if it's not fully penetrating the resin , you can get away with sanding/buffing it down to 2000grit or so, then clearing and re-applying a decal
    Otherwise, you will have to attempt to fill it in with some resin, and do the above
