Ruckus Components Wants Your Broken Carbon Fiber Parts

Dear Reader, you may remember our Pic Of The Day we titled “Nice Rack” of a carbon fiber bike rack with an antler rack etched into it–that rack was made by Ruckus Components, a custom carbon fiber components manufacturer in Oregon. Well, they have a request for you:

Do you have broken carbon fiber parts beyond repair?

I am in search of your broken carbon bike parts, frames, and wheels, they can be in exchange for Ruckus apparel, and/or credits towards components.

The idea is to amass broken parts and experiment with reconstruction methods which will be used for analysis and testing. Based on my findings this data might be used for a possible journal publication. All people/organizations who have donated will be thanked in the publication.

If you have some broken carbon you want to donate please email me here with a photo and a description.
