Can I buy this tubular wheel and fix it?

Everything about building wheels, glueing tubs, etc.

Found this C35 rear wheel on eBay and is exactly what I needed since I broke mine in a race. Problem is that it looks like the brake track is damaged on one spot, hence the low price. Do you guys think I think I can buy this and go to a LBS to get it fixed?

Thanks so much!!

What part is the LBS going to fix? carbon repair? Or swap rim from your wheel?

There is no telling what has happened to that wheel. Not recommended.

Thanks guys! Since I broke my C35 tubular I've been using a C24 clincher for about a year now while keeping the front C35 tub, any recommendations on a good <$600 read deeper rim wheel? Been thinking zip 303.

This might do, and let you use the same spokes if they're still useable:
