Carbon Repair SF Bay Area?

A big-ol rock kicked up and smashed into my MTB down tube just to the side of the plastic protector. It left what I would describe as a “dent” that I’m pretty sure cracked the carbon fiber.

Any recommendations for where to get it repaired in the East Bay? Or greater SF Bay Area?

Its a 2019 Niner Rip 9 RDO. This happened yesterday afternoon and I haven’t had the time to do a deeper examination. I’ll snap some photos later.

Joe's has had a booth on the main path at Sea Otter for quit e few years now.

RRVelo is another Watsonville option if they are still in business. Edgar used to run mfg for calfee.

I had a downtube crack on my s-works CX. My LBS is the shop that does all the work for Stanford cycling and has a close relationship with Calfee. I sent it to Calfee via them. Simple repair, but the paint to match and decal to match pricing was more than the cost of the repair itself so I just left it "patched" and put a decal over the repair location.

Shop around for pricing since what you need sounds like a straightforward patch/wrap that I would think any of the three above could do easily.

Have used Calfee a couple of times and I live in Boston.
Always did top-notch quality repair - if anything better than new, esp for me Colnago C40 that had habit of chain stay and rear drop-out loosening. Had to do with the design by Colnago which Craig Calfee walked me through in detail.

Spyder Composites in Scotts Valley. Much less expensive, better QC, better communication, and way quicker.

Ruckus Composites in Portland is awesome. Not "local", but close enough that shipping is quick.
