- Damaged Carbon Frames – Are they worth anything or worth getting repaired
Carbon frames can be quite cheaply repaired “£50” ish- depending on the nature of the damage – your sound very do able.

I have a couple of Carbon frames that both have a patch where the carbon has worn through.
One is where the chainrings rubbed with mud and you can push the carbon in as it is soft, the other is inside the non-drive side chain stay and it has worn through a couple of layers of carbon.
Is it worth getting them repaired then selling them, or just selling them as is and letting the buyer get them repaired.
Or are they just fit for the skip………Posted 4 years agorobdobMember
Damaged 456 frame here for anyone wanting to have a go at fixing a frame.
Doesn’t look too bad IMHO.
It isn’t mine by the way.Posted 4 years ago
One of them is a Moda Hardtail, the other a trek 9.9 Team issue. They are both 26″ wheeled frames, one is mine, one was my son’s – we have both gone to 29″ wheels now, and were cleaning these up to sell when we noticed the damage.
That’s why I was wondering what people’s views were on their resale value – if anyPosted 4 years ago
