I purchased my first road bike a few months ago. It is a 2006 Giant TCR, compact frame. Anyway, the chain had fallen off the sprocket, and apparently rubbed through the bottom tube. There are a few fibers sticking out, but mainly it has rubbed through the gel coat.
My local bike shop wont touch it and said i might try putting nail coat on it, and I was wondering if I can just cover it with some carbon fiber resin. A good friend of mine builds carbon fiber prosthetics, and can do it, but I wanted to check with the forum first.
Any suggestions? Thanks beforehand.
