Sounds good to me, assuming I get a bike sorted this week. You can reach me through my web site listed in my sig. I'm actually linked up with two teams here in Amsterdam that ride regularly, but I'm sure you probably are as well. Let me know. Thanks again.

After closer inspection and some web searching I have concluded that the rear derailleur swung up and punched a hole in the frame. I then found ACR who does composite repair for a variety of industries including bicycles and they quoted €180 with a 3 day turnaround so I'm headed down this afternoon to drop it off.

I plan on reinforcing the underside with a thin piece of alloy similar to the anti-chain-suck that is already present on this frame.

Bad luck or poor design, I'll let you be the judge but this is better then paying twice that in shipping, waiting months and possibly being denied warranty for the mishap.

If by alloy you mean aluminum, I'd make sure it's anodized/painted and the carbon is clearcoated/painted well in that area.

Or get a titanium plate...

"Hey, it's me".

It's nice having Ciamillo make me whatever I want ;)

But it's also on the underside of the chain stay. Maybe I'll glue a 1 euro piece there..... Not rly.

If this is true then I would make sure that derailleur shifting is set correctly.

Wow, that was fast. I had a 58 frame lying around that you could have used but I'm glad to see that ACR helped you out so quickly.

Shifting is fine. Hitting the FD button at 30mph accidentally, not so much.

Still want to know why a RD swings up enough that the pulleys can touch the chain stay.

Bikes back at home. I road it for a quick 10Km, it was raining. Feels great, cant even see the repair work. My wife looked at it while it was upside down (being cleaned) and said, "which side was it"? I'm pleased. Great work ACR. Many referrals in your future!
