Now it wasn't too bad, still had structure but obviously needed repairing.
Apparently all frames are at their weakest in the centre of the top tube. You can press down and it flexes a little compared to other areas on the bike. Makes sense really.
Anyway, I got lucky with timing, and within a few days I had Ridley back and repaired.
He did a great job, and the colours even slightly blended in - bar the obvious carbon strip in the middle of course!!
Strangely, the upset in paint work doesn't bother me.
I could get a graphic/sticker over it, or go all out and spray it back but I don't plan on doing this.
I have another plan in mind, which will come to fruition soon enough.
