“Like it never happened” That’s what you’ll be telling your riding buddies after working with us.
Jack started off in the 1970s working after his shop hours becoming well versed in molding processes. He began with an emphasis in fiber glass — repairing boats, surf boards, race cars, motorcycles, etc. Working with moldings easily complimented his custom paint and bike work. With his machine shop and expertise, he can essentially build and cut a “puzzle piece” if necessary. With his tool and die maker experience, Jack knows the engineering required to repair carbon fiber. With this knowledge, he not only repairs your frame, but replicates the ride quality and makes it as strong, if not stronger than before. As high end carbon fiber bicycles continue to roar onto the scene, the demand for professional carbon repair services have sky rocketed. He frequently works with his industry partners — bike shops, bicycle importers, race teams, and bicycle manufacturers themselves. Now, Jack is making his services available to the general public.
There are a lot of great companies out there repairing carbon fiber bicycles, but we take our work a step further. We believe that when a your bike comes into our shop, on top of the repair, it should leave looking better than it came in. Your bike is going to look new. We do not leave the repaired areas exposed or unpainted. We understand why others do it, it’s cheaper, but it’s unsightly. This is because carbon fiber weaves vary from manufacturer to manufacturer (just like fabrics). Your nickname isn’t going to be “Patches” on the group ride. Almost every repair we do receives a completely new clear or matte coat on the frame and fork. We do not believe in potential inconsistencies in the clear and neither do our customers. We believe in doing small touch ups too. When a bike is repaired by Jack Kane, it’s going to have the same aesthetic value as his custom bicycle paint jobs. Expect more from your repairs.
If you want your bike to receive a rock solid repair, look like nothing happened, and appear brand spanking new, we’re your repair company.
