My girlfriend has a carbon frame she bought off ebay a couple years ago, and has put a lot of miles on. I've been upgrading it for my spring break project.
The BB shell was backwards (like swiss style) so I had to install an external cup BB.
There is a gap between the chainstay and her rear dropout, I was thinking about filling this in for a year or two until we can afford better bikes. My gf just started grad school, and I'll be graduating with my undergrad soon so I have to live frugally until then.
I was considering putting epoxy into the gap and clamping it down by running a tourniquet style clamp between the bridge, and the dropout with a wood dowel for a lever.
Would this work? Are there better options? Am I asking to be a single man by putting the GF on this bike?
