    Custom Carbon Frame Builders/Experts, I need your help!

    I posted this in the VRC forum a while back...but I figured I'd cross post it here to see if anyone had some other ideas or leads as to how to get this guy fixed...

    I've talked to Craig Calfee, who didn't think that it could be repaired...or at least not be made completely trail worthy.

    I'm hoping someone will have a lead or know how to bring this guy back to life...

    The frame is a 'Prototype' Titanium/Carbon Nuke Proof. The seller said one of five built.

    Now the sad part...take a close look up at the Ti head tube and down tube...doh! I knew this when I bought the frame and I'm hoping that someone here will know someone who is willing and capable of taking on a little project....can this be re-epoxyed?!

    If it can, this could end up a sweet little number...

    If anyone has more info on this find, I'd be more than happy to hear it.

    did you talk to titus?

    they do that carbon/ti mix. how about a aerospace place? if it was glued once, it can be glued again, i figure. how about one of those golf club manufacturers who mix carbon and ti.
