THE INSIDE LANE - Tech Talk - Kevlar/graphite & steel chain stay reinforcement.
This is the finished frame modification. This is a permanent mod.
I added a sheet of Kevlar/carbon fiber weave with omnidirectional strength - bonded with steel reinforced epoxy - to the crank side chain stay of my bike.
It's an experiment to see if this type of structural modification can protect a carbon fiber bicycle frame from dropped chain damage.
