I think someone was asking about one of these recently.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220048316259

Formula 1 carbon in all it's glory. Would love it myself but must resist the fortune I'd spend on building it up.

Yup, money permitting, I'm after this one.

questioning the chap at the moment , trying to get some Idea of how bad the damage is and a frame number .

anyone know how you stand re-bonding the frame where the split is ?

have a look on the loctite (henkel) site they do adhesives for everything
but probably a u.v. cure bond would be best.

Whatever you do to it it will never be as strong as it was unless you wrap it, and if you do it will look crap.
