I have a pair of Bontrager XXX Lite shoes with about 1200k on them and recently noticed that the carbon sole on the left shoe is separating from the upper, it appears that the adhesive is starting to break down there. Any suggestions as to repair?

i would suggest taking them back to ask about warranty before attempting repair, as that certainly sounds abnormal.

Bought off ebay a month ago. The original owner had barely used them, though. I noticed it after riding in the rain twice within a week.

Not being a smart ass but go to a shoe repair place... Theyll bond em back.

I used to have shimano shoes in the 90's that would do that. They eventually riveted the shoe and sole together and changed the glue.
It was nice getting new shoes after every few wet rides so I did not mind.

I wondered about that, but thought maybe the average cobbler would use something not appropriate for carbon. Thanks.
