    source for carbon supplies

    I'm taking on an ambitious carbon repair job. I've searched a few online shops for carbon fiber supplies. Any recommendations on where to get carbon and resin for a repair job. Also any suggestions on specific materials

    Here's another supplier https://northerncomposites.com/

    That's going to be very challenging.

    thanks, hence the "ambitious" designation. It's out of warranty so I've got nothing to lose. I'll document the process in the Yeti sub forum. basically I plan on bonding in a sleeve (old seat post) at the bottom crack. and then re-wrapping the top tube. the bike is actually rideable as-is. I rode 7 miles like that.

    To mitigate galvanic corrosion you should wrap the seat post with fiber glass if it is aluminum.

    Soller Composites has some variety, though their ordering screen is VERY strange it does seem to work reliably.

    Express Composites is in my back yard in Minneapolis MN, they're nice people and can answer any question.

    That is a hard repair. Yikes. I... do not mean the following in a cruel way, but I offer you no advice on how to do it.
    Disclaimer: I run Regular Cycles (officialy in 2016, functionally in 2020).

    I've used, with excellent results the Nubian epoxy primer 13. More info here:

    CEF Trading Co Ltd.

    Despite the excellent insulation it is really easy to use and has this bright (aircraft interior) paint that helps visually, when covering your parts with CF!Name:  13-W.jpg

    Just thought I'd update this thread. I documented my first real repair in the Yeti section. I ended up getting my materials from https://compositeenvisions.com/ They had great prices and shipped next day. I went with a few yards of blemish 2x2 twill weave and it worked perfectly. All in all I'm pleased with the repair result and feel that it should hold up well. It was a great learning experience. I'll for sure be on the look out for damaged carbon for sale in the future.
