Got my carbon fiber kit really fast - All materials were top quality - the video instructions were great and easy to follow - I successfully repaired my bike and I am stoked... Thanks for an awesome kit...
Easy to use and the instruction videos were very easy to follow. Saved my bike!
Aram has been a great help to explain in detail everything that is needed to repair a carbon frame. He will work with you to get you through your repair and back on the road fast - 5-6 days.
This is an excellent kit that came with everything I needed to get back on the road. My suggestion is watch all predators videos and watch them again. Then take your time and follow instructions. Great kit.
I do have to echo the comment below (or will it be above?) me, shipping was incredibly fast!
The area I was looking to repair was a small crack on the underside of my top tube. I think people could argue a lot about how dangerous this actually is, but I had it for almost a year and the crack never grew; I deemed that I was pretty fortunate it was not more of a load bearing area (relatively speaking), but I needed to do something.
I found the kit through a quick Google search. I might've been able to go cheaper or even individually scrap together the materials I needed for less, but I had no experience with carbon fiber repair so that would be foolish, even for me. The existence of the video went a long way in convincing me that this kit and process was something I could take at face value.
As far as difficulty goes,on a technical level it's extremely easy. To get a nice finish, I think having an eye for symmetry and alignment is going to help a lot, and most importantly in my case, I wish I had a mount for my bike so I could view the application from multiple angles without having to move my bike. Artistry over mechanic's sense will help you more than anything, in my opinion, with getting a good result.
After completing the repair, I was extremely happy to find that I couldn't deform the tube by squeezing it anymore, it feels rock solid! The only con really is that I need to figure out how to conceal/integrate the carbon fiber threads with my bike's original appearance.
