Anthony and his crew repaired the cracked seat stay on my Pinarello F8 and refinished the chain stay that was scratched through to the carbon. The repair is undetectable and the paint is a perfect match to the rest of the bike.
His communication is excellent and he kept me updated with progress pictures throughout the process. As a bonus, his price was extremely reasonable. Thanks to Anna Maria as well

I know some people are nervous about repairing carbon. I’m not an expert - unless using Carbonworks twice within a few months makes me one - but I’d say the repair work is just great. I damaged the top tube of my bike when it fell over and a few months later my daughter crashed with her bike damaging the fork. In both cases the repair process was quite quick (about a week) and straight forward with good communication and status updates. Cost depend on finishing options and were in both cases as agreed - no surprises.
I hope you don’t need to repair your carbon bike - but if you do, Carbonworks does great work.

I brought my Time road bike in to have work done where the front derailleur attaches to the post, as the rivets were moving ever so slighty which caused it to rub on front sprocket. The bike was dropped off on a Sunday, advised what the issue was on Monday. Provided options and when I made up my mind as to what I wanted to do, the fix was done right away, and I had my bike back by Saturday. I was informed along the way, and provided with an extensive review of the bike from a screening that was done....very professional. Thanks Anthony for working with me, and I look forward to seeing you again for the custom paint job.

I had a soft spot in the top tube of my carbon mountain bike. Communication with Anthony was quick and clear from start to finish of the repair. He kept me updated on the progress throughout with pictures and was very quick in the turn around (under 2 weeks including paint). The end result was a structurally sound frame with perfectly matched paint touch up.

My triathlon bike had some surface damage that occurred in shipping; I contacted Anthony at Carbon Works to get it repaired and went for a completely new custom paint job on the bike while at it;
I experienced customer service that is second-to-none. Anthony was awesome to work with, I got updates every few days on the progress of the project, usually with pictures. The end result is stunning, VERY happy so far with the work done by Anthony and his team of professionals. Glad I dealt with Carbon Works.

I would trust Anthony and Anna Maria with my wallet and first born. That's really all you need to know.
Cracked seat tube below H2o bottle bosses and above FD rivets. Soft to the touch, likely caused by poor packing in bike box without removing bottle cage (that would be me).
The customer service was exceptional. Lots of emails updating diagnosis, plan, repair and finish along with many, many photos.
Paint job on top of that make it simply look brand new.
Thank you Anthony for a job well done.

I was brokenhearted when my bike fell over and struck the base of my bicycle pump and punctured a hole in the top tube of my beloved Roubaix. I’m in a better FRAME of mind now, thanks to Anthony Silvestri and the folks at CarbonWork. They were able to do the repair for less than half the cost of buying a factory replacement frame. As a physician, I was most impressed when they sent me an analysis of the damage, using a technology similar to MRI (electrical NDT). In this way Anthony was able determine what sort of repair would be required to make it really safe. And he told me how much it would cost up front. Now I can ride with confidence knowing that carbonWork has restored my broken frame to its original strength. And it looks just like new! Thanks CarbonWork.
Review by Aspiring Ulutu9 months ago
Had carbon bars repaired for $200.
When I received them back I was required to sand them down to what the stem.
The tolerance was so tight it would of taken off the patch.
The real friction was questioning the repair from the owner.
Only received half the cost.
Should of listened to the other person who took my call.
She was right and had a far better attitude than that the owner.
Nice hat rack. I would really question repairing carbon or even buying after this fiasco.
I would of only given 1 stars for him and his poor attitude but she earned that star.
Will not recommend service for bars

I cracked a seat stay on my carbon bike frame.
Anthony was very prompt in replying to my initial request for info. I simply emailed pictures of the damage and within hours I had 3 repair options.
I delivered the frame to Anthony’s house. Within days I had a detailed analysis of the damage and a favourable prognosis for repair.
Anthony always updated me on the repair status with pictures. Within a week or two I had my frame back with a pro colour matched repaint of both seat stays.
The price was exactly as promised with no hidden fees/upsell nonsense.
Thanks CarbonWork. I have already recommended them to other riders.
Review by Pathak Derrow10 months ago
The product speaks for itself. I had put a hole in my 40mm Roval bike wheel while being careless in the garage.
Anthony from Carbon Works analysed the break, and repaired the damaged area. 12,000km later and the repair still looks the same and the wheel is performing like it was brand new.
From the prompt correspondence to their impeccable workmanship, Carbon Works is the place to go!
Review by Yangshu11 months ago
Left rear seat stay on Wilier GTR SL frame cracked and carbon delamination. Got in touch with Anthony at Carbonwork, and within a week the bike is fixed professionally with care and consideration. Top shelf work and amazing customer relations. 10/10. Highly recommended.
Review by Pathuma1 year ago
One of my rear stays was damaged when the rear derailleur broke off and hit my Specialized frame during a cycling event. My local bike store recommended Carbonwork, and gave me Anthony’s contact details.
My initial enquiry by e-mail was answered by Anthony within an hour, and all subsequent e-mails were answered very quickly. After dropping off my frame for repair I was kept informed of the progress being made, and sent photos of the repair at various stages.
The repair took just over a week to complete, and is excellent; the bike looks as good as new and the repair cost was much less than buying a new frame.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anthony Silvestri of Carbonwork to anyone with a carbon fibre bike frame in need of repair.
Review by Mackenzii Pazchau1 year ago
I damaged my carbon bike frame when my chain became jammed between small chain ring and down tube just above the bottom bracket. Resulted in a dime sized gouge into the carbon structure.
A riding friend suggested I check out CarbonWork.ca. I sent photos of damage and 8 minutes later, Anthony responded with a price estimate for 3 repair options. 10 minutes later he offered to complete a basic repair over the long weekend!
I delivered my frame to him Thursday evening and the repair was complete on Sunday! Throughout the weekend, Anthony sent me updates showing results of initial NDT testing, plus progress and photos through the repair process.
Outstanding customer service all the way and at a fraction of the cost of a new frame.
Review by Yuyang Tener1 year ago
Outstanding service and communication. Hopefully I never crack my frame again but if I do Carbonwork will be the first call I make. Thanks for getting me back on the road quickly.
Review by SkillAura1 year ago
I was referred to CarbonWork by a friend at the Milton Velodrome.
I sent pics of my damaged carbon wheels to CarbonWork over the Family Day long weekend and was surprised to receive a response immediately from Anthony explaining the repair process. All emails and queries were subsequently answered promptly.
Throughout the whole repair process I was kept informed - pics were sent of the Electrical Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) setup, a detailed Non-Destructive Testing report of the findings were provided and pics were provided of the sanding process and finished product.
My wheels were completed on schedule and as promised.
Anthony and his team at CarbonWork takes great pride in their company as it is reflected in their customer service and workmanship.
I am satisfied with the work performed and would recommend CarbonWork to fix any carbon bicycles and wheels.

In case your wondering about the name of this review, my bike was “born again” thanks to Anthony and CarbonWork.
I had broken my seatstay of my cervelo early last season in an accident and had written it off. I found CarbonWork and was intrigued. Early this year, I contacted them, with the hope of repairing the frame, painting it a different colour, and building it up with new parts.
Anthony responded immediately and offered me a great price on repair and custom paint job. To make matters more complicated I was moving from Alberta to the Toronto area.
I shipped my frame and fork to him end of January and commenced on having every part of the build sent to Anthony from online vendors. He patiently received them all and stored them in the meantime.
The frame was repaired and frame and fork were painted a new colour in less than a month after I sent them to him. Factory specific decals were also applied, but in a new colour.
He then quickly built the bike up from scratch with the new parts in just one week.
Upon pick up, I was super impressed! It looks great and more importantly works great. My broken afterthought of a bike became my dreambike.
In closing, Anthony was incredible to deal with. I have been biking for 20 years and this is the best customer service I have ever received in the bike industry. He is knowledagble, patient, and very quick to respond.
I highly recommend CarbonWork!
Review by RumBaba1 year ago
I did something my wife told me not to do. I clamped my top tube and broke it. (Guy's if you have ever done something she tells you not to and it goes bad, you know life can get very scary.)
An web search moments after the diaster and I found Carbonwork. Within minutes, Anthony had replied to my web inquiry and assured me that it was an easy fix and everything would be all right.
Through out the entire process the customer service I experienced from this company was beyond exceptional. The cost was a little more than the competition, but you always get what you pay for. Besides the perfect service, the craftsman ship is top notch. You would be very hard pressed to tell me where the damage was.
I was updated when the frame arrived, and every time there was a step change I got a photo in my inbox. From the xray and the acompanying report, photos of the prep and then pictures of the finished product. When the job was completed and put on a courier truck to return home Anthony phoned me to inform me that it was on the way home and to thank me for the business.
If you need a carbon repair, don't look anywhee else but Carbonwork.

Anthony did an excellent job, was responsive and helpful throughout the repair job.
Review by Deily3 years ago
I'm very happy with my experience with Carbon Works. I had a small carbon repair and a complete custom paint job done on my Cervélo Soloist Carbon.
Anthony was very easy to deal with and kept me in the loop at all steps of the process. He sent me photos and a running commentary throughout.
The finished product is excellent. The depth, clarity and finish of the paint is the same, if not better, than what you would get from a top end bike manufacturer.
I've recommended Carbon Works to my friends and teammates who are looking for similar work... Thanks Anthony!
Review by Brugha Holtsberg3 years ago
I purchased a carbon bike on pink bike and everything seemed ok until I took it to the bike shop and they informed me that there was a crack in my carbon frame (another wonderful used purchase!). I asked if there was anything I could do and they suggested Carbonwork out of Oakville. I called and immediately got an answer and was asked to take some pictures and provide a description of the repair necessary.
Within hours I had a response. Anthony was very quick to respond to every e-mail and was very accommodating in pick up and drop off times. The detail provided after his testing blew me away. To be honest I didn't particularly understand most of it but his summary and conclusion was great.
The work was complete within a week and a half and the bike looked great. Not only did Anthony repair the crack, he added more carbon layers to strengthen the weak point in the frame.
I would definitely recommend this company for any carbon work.
Review by DStaggen3 years ago
I am very happy with my repair and new paint job. Anthony delivered as promised and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I have not yet trail tested the bike but I don't anticipate any concerns. We did have trouble matching the old paint color. This bike was completely striped and rebuilt and it rides like new. I would not hesitate to recommend this service.
Review by Save Khenglawt3 years ago
I had a pretty rough fall on my mountain bike and scraped/cracked my chain stays. Anthony at Carbon Work was speedy to respond to every one of my emails and always kept me updated in terms of the repair process. This included progress pictures and daily/weekly updates.
Anthony was always available to speak to in regards of the repair process and was very kind in terms of the pick up and drop off times and days. I picked up my bike just this past Saturday and I'm very pleased with the results. It's almost as if the bike was never in an accident.
The frame is smooth, the paint is nearly identical, and there are no weak points, since Anthony and his team do further testing post-carbon and paint application. I trust my bike with CarbonWork and will gladly do business with them again.
