Carbon Fiber Bike Repair – X-Ray Inspections 

With our x-ray technology, we have the ability to detect the unseen damage that can potentially cause catastrophic failure. Our carbon x-ray inspections and bike repair services have been used by professionals, Olympians, World and National Champions since 2005.

With over 1400 bikes repaired in 2012 alone, we repaired more bikes and wheels than all of our competitors combined. Because our primary focus is on carbon bike repair and inspection, we have been able to develop our own proprietary methods thus enabling us to give you the technology that our competitors are still trying to understand.

Because we live the bike culture, all of our technicians ride or race and have an equity stake in Cycle Haus and Spyder Composites. We believe that unless you live the life, you will not have the passion to treat the customer’s bike as if it were your own.

Carbon Fiber Bike Repair – Internal Bladder Control System (IBCS) 

Because of our commitment to provide only carbon bike repair and  inspection services, we are light years ahead in repair research and application. Cycle Haus does not see carbon fiber bike repair as just an additional service. Our competitors, however, consider this type of service secondary to their overall business model.

Currently, the industry standard is to lay a patch of carbon over the damaged area. We understand that this is not the best process and technology available. Cycle Haus has developed several advanced proprietary methods for cabron frame and wheel repair that none of our competitors currently use. The use of our Internal Bladder Control System (IBCS) enables our technicians to build from the inside out.

In a lot cases, the damaged carbon has more severe unseen damage. In particular, through advanced inspection techniques, we have found hidden delamination’s and cracks between layers generated by low energy collisions. Because of the lower energy of the impact, the damage is typically unseen on the surface and the impact damage may propagate resulting in catastrophic failure. Additionally, carbon fiber is hydroscopic and unprotected, it may absorb water. Anytime you see damage on the surface, a qualified mechanic or technician should be consulted. Failing to do so could have detrimental effects to the strength of your frame. Therefore, an effective and reliable Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) suitable for impact damages is highly recommended.

 With over 26 years of experience inspecting and building composite structures, our Level II and III certified technicians have the capability to detect and identify most unseen impact damage by using various NDT methods. By using Ultrasonic Inspection and Radiography (x-ray), we have developed specific proprietary techniques to detect the smallest inconsistency within the structure giving us the confidence that the damaged area will be completely repaired. As Lennard Zinn said; “why tempt fate”
