    I have a Look carbon fiber frame and one of the water bottle mount threaded receivers has pulled out of the carbon. Is there a certain kind of resin or glue I could use to repair this? It looks like it would be easy to fix, I just want make sure I use the right stuff and fix it right on the first try.

    I have a similar problem. Both threaded water cage mounts have been pulled out, but I don't have the receivers. What would be the best way to fix this. I don't necessarily need the water cage mounts, but I would like to fix the holes. Also, is this a structural problem for the bike?

    It's probably not a structural issue. You can fill the holes and paint over them, but it would be easier to just get a couple of aluminum bosses and epoxy them in.
