Carbon wheel repair?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this has been covered but I don't come here often.
I have a set Spinergy Rev-X wheels with a couple small chips in the edges of a couple spokes.
Clear epoxy? Super glue? I considered JB weld but I want to keep the repair looking as inconspicuous as possible.
Thanks, Dan

It depends on how big the chips are. If you can see broken fibers on the surface it's time for a new set of wheels. For clear coat chips, extra thick super glue works best.

Re: Carbon wheel repair?

I hear from my LBS that 3M has a new resin specificly for carbon fiber repair.

Anyone have experience with this?
