Default How to repair carbon fiber wheels?

I have a pair of Spinergy Rev X that have some minor damage to the blades.
What's the best product to use to patch with? Also, on my rear wheel where
the blades meet the hub has become detached from the hub. Please tell me
what will glue carbon to aluminum?

Thanks very much!

Allen

Go to a workshop that does fibreglass stuff, like a good yachting workshop
and tell them what you want to do. They'll tell you the best type of epoxy
resin to use for the job. They may even be able to give you some carbon
fibre scaps. A good canoe shop might be able to help you too. You need to
use special two part epoxys.
