Frame Repair Help

Hi Everyone,

My name is Jeff and I am new to the bike forum community. I have an Airborne Manhattan Project Road (Titanium & Carbon Fiber frame) road bike and I have just found out that the left rear-dropout is having issues. The rear seat stay is composed of carbon fiber and is bonded to the rear dropout. Below is a picture of the frame:

The bond between the carbon fiber and the titanium is wearing out and I need to get it fixed. Unfortunately, Airborne no longer exists (moved to Netherlands and under a new name). Does anyone know of any reputable, competent repair shops that I can ship the frame to? I have already spoken to Spectrum Cycles and they are unable to repair the drop out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Try Craig Calfee at They offer a highly regarded repair service for carbon frames and should be able to do yours. I have no idea what the cost will be.
