Carbon repair company Ruckus refreshes branding, offers three-tiered repair menu

Published December 21, 2017

PORTLAND, Ore. (BRAIN) — Ruckus Composites, a carbon fiber repair company, has refreshed its branding for 2018, among other changes. The nine-year-old company also is launching its own podcast, planning a warehouse sale at its Portland headquarters, and unveiling a new three-tiered pricing system for repairs. 

Shawn Small, owner and head engineer of Ruckus Composites, said, "We are thrilled to launch into 2018. Over the last year, we have grown our staff and expanded our facility, along with carbon fiber inspection technologies, to continuously deliver safe and reliable repairs. Our aim is to continually be the trusted resource for cyclists, shops and manufacturers."

Ruckus said its new podcast, "Fiber Side Chats," is intended to dispel myths about carbon repair, inform customers about the right way to repair, and position themselves as the experts in carbon fiber bicycle repair. The podcast can be downloaded from or is available through podcast apps. 

The warehouse sale will be Jan. 20, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at 3380 SE 20th Avenue in Portland. An assortment of carbon fiber bicycle frames (both previously-repaired and ready-for-repair) will be on sale at deeply discounted prices. As part of the sale, customers can purchase a ready-for-repair carbon frame, then jump in the repair queue that day. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local advocacy organization, The Street Trust.

Ruckus' 2018 price guide offers three tiers. Their $350 "Basic" package does not include finishing or body work, just a matte black paint at the repair site that is blended with the original color. The next tier "Modified" packages are $500-$600 and include base-color paint restoration but no graphics. The "Full" package starts at $600 includes full detailing and graphic restoration.
