Cosmetic Repair for Record Levers
OK, a few weeks ago I was on a group ride that included an off-pavement section. At one steep downhill pitch, my wheel sunk into some gravel before I could steer onto the packed dirt along the edge of the track and I went down. I ended up scraping my right leg and my left arm just below the elbow. The bike was, for the most part, ok except that a small amount of the finish on my carbon fiber levers chipped off. Other than that everyone/thing was fine and I was able to finish the ride with the group.
So here's the question: Is clear polyurethane or clear nail polish safe to use on CF to restore the finish?
