Do you really think all these bikes being made are using "Top" quality materials? I can't imagine they do.

It depends fasta .... the last bike i repaired which was a specialized tarmac uses a really really top quality carbon fiber.
Could hear the sound , could feel the drive of the vibrations throughout the hole frame.Really low void content , and really high cf to resin ratio....

Any pre preg would have the same void content (assuming the same bladder process of reasonable pressure) and would also have the same or similar resin content. The fibre quality could be quite different though.

I don't ride bikes but I repair them all the time for local shops and riders, also doing a Specialized tarmac at the moment.

Which shipping companies do you use?

Fibermax charge 50 extra for shipping resin. So for my order of 300 (including a small pump) I have to pay 112 for shipping only.
I use andreou shipping for shipments from england and from Greece anuone...i mean there are dozens so many that i dont remember which one i used last

Or make your own. It's easy.

I started making my own a while ago and find it to be just as good as the pre-made stuff I was buying. In some cases it is better.

There are some pretty good video on YouTube that demonstrate the process.
