Carbon is generally repairable.

The top solution is to send it back to Colnago. They will do a beautiful job for a price. Otherwise find a more local workshop who may be able to do it depending whether they can source a dropout.

You wouldn't want to pay too much for the broken frame in the first place obviously.

I broke the headtube off a C40 once. Colnago 'repaired' it. It sure looked like they just provided a new frameset with the old derailleur hanger (the serial-numbered part).

This looks an easy repair as the drop out
bolts to the seat stay only bonded in the
chain stay
I've already got 2 Colnago's both sloping
thou so a standard frame would be nice to
add.

Send it back. But ask if they will warranty it first.
