@Maxitty: Ah, I had one of my i23 rims crack at a spoke hole near the seam, replaced under warranty. They even compensated me for the wheel build and down time.

No... I'm building a new MTB. They're $122 on CRC right now though.

Hey, you should use the reply button on my post, so it notifies me you replied. That sounds like you did a solid fix, I'd do the same personally if I had a carbon frame damaged. I had some co-workers that didn't believe in CF at all, a cross bike with a carbon fork and alloy steer tube came in to the shop one day with a bent steer tube. They proceed to say "Oh man imagine if it was all carbon, it would have exploded!" So I had the idea of destruction testing the carbon parts of the fork... and they were completely sold on carbon after that. I have a piece of that fork leg on my keychain for the last 5 years now, and I always demonstrate it to people who are scared of carbon. It's very thin in one part, about 1mm thick, and 2.5mm at the thickest part. I've had 250lb+ men stand on that little oval piece of carbon in it's most vulnerable position, and nobody has been able to break it or make it crack yet. If it was made from steel, aluminum, or titanium, it would have been flat by now. Carbon is a beautiful thing, it's too bad so many people are ignorant about it, and it's great that there is more Chinese companies perfecting it, making it available to people who can't afford to spend $8,000 on a bicycle.

It's good to see people actually fixing stuff, not just replacing and throwing away the old. Nice work, hope it holds up for you! Did you remove a bunch of material and build it back up?
