Does anyone know of a carbon Fiber frame manufacturer in the midwest. I live in Illinois and I am looking for someone within a weekend trip's distance that makes carbon fiber frames and/or components.
I am on a design team at my college(Missouri S&T). We are the Human Powered Vehicle Team and We compete in the ASME HPV Challenge which is where we build a bike or trike and race it against other schools. We are trying to look into carbon frame and/or component Manufacture. We'd like to see how it's done, if it's do-able for us, etc...

Ask the same question here.
Frameforum has a few active pro carbon frame builders.
I watched a video made by West System resins of them working with a college building a ultra high millage gas powered vehicle. It was made of bicycle components and was basically a HPV without pedals. This video. They should be able to point you in the right direction.
