lately I broke one of my carbon rails of my Specialized S-Works Power saddle. While these don't come very cheap I thought it may be possible to repair the rail and get it on my bike again.
All I know is that I can buy some carbon fibre, resin, brushes, sandpaper and stuff. But I do not really know how to start.
I think I could smoothen the broken surfaces with sand paper, but this would mean I'd take away some length.

Maybe someone can help me to get this done

I didn't clamp the saddle enough on my new ultimate seatpost and crashed. The yokes were probably crooked and caused the damage
I come from mountainbike marathon racing and so far carbon saddles tend to last longer :D
