Canyon Cage Repair
« on: July 16, 2014, 08:07:07 pm »
Unfortunately, several of us have dropped our Connies  :-\ , but the Cages have saved us.  I know its a pretty simple repair, but has anyone made a really good repair that they could detail the process and tools used (and paint color/code/name).  At least for me, I'm really just talking about a drop, not a slide.

My Cages are the black ones, not sure what the solution would be for the guys/gals with the chrome Cages. Taking them off and sending them to MCE is just not an option given all the install issues that some folks have had.  TIA

I just found a black epoxy spray paint that matches the MCE bars.

When I had my little slide, I just masked the bike off and sprayed the scuffed part of the bar lightly. The trick is not put too much on.

After it dries you really can't tell the difference.

If they start to rust or something eventually, I'll take them off during the winter and have them stripped and powder coated.
