repairing or replacing a busted carbon seat stay? Possible?

My father asked me to post this.
he crashed his Pinarello Galileo and cracked the carbon seat stay.
is it possible to repair carbon? or, is it possible to replace the broken element?

thanks

Peter

(I'll post a photo as soon as he sends it to me.)

Calfee repaired my carbon seat stay just fine. They are the standard for this.

I would send it back to Pinarello. They can fix the chain stay and the paint.

Calfee Designs (https://www.calfeedesign.com/) is one of the best known and is a well regarded repair shop for damaged carbon frames and they are domestic.

Pinarello may indeed be able to repair the frame but you would probably have to send the frame back to Italy and the wait may be very long.

I thought that might be a better spot for it.
and, since I just got apicture and it appears it is the aluminum section above the carbon, behind the seattube that isbusted, I will wrap this here and repost un Framebuilding.
thanks
