It's a really old model and I only paid 120 including an Ultrega cassette so not really looking at a professional repair.

Now that is cheap!
Put a sticker over it.
Forget it's there.
Don't borrow it to your mate who's 110 kg"s and coasts at 300 watts.

I won't have to worry about the 300W, well not for any kind of duration, but the 110kg is a little closer to home. Smile

Fairly happy how the repairs went but it wasn't exactly an invisible repair so msy as well make the most of it.
The other marks you can see are slight indentations in the surface that pick up the light. I've added the 2nd pic to try and show how thick the material is. It's nothing like other carbon I've seen which is like an egg shell. The best way I can describe it is carbon skinned hardboard with quite a bit of thickness and inherent strength to it.
The proof will be in the riding I guess, watch this space.

Took it out for a quick spin round the village on Saturday. Only 5km and didn't hit any big potholes or the like but so far so good, all teeth present and correct.
Hit over 50kph and 500W a couple of times and the roads aren't great so it got a pretty decent shaking.
