I would get in contact with the manufacturer of your frame/fork and see what they recommend, for safety reasons. Another reason: not all carbon is the same litespeed weaves metal in theirs; and OCLV(trek) and kestral's carbon, for example, would be made entirely differently.

I was unfortunate enough to have a set of Spinergy Rev-X wheels a few years ago. The blades would constantly get chipped and start to fray from road debris. The guys at spinergy suggested putting a layer of their clear plastic (really heavy stuff like decals) on there and repairing the dings with clear nail polish. It did the trick until I hit that big old maple. Humpty Dumpty laughed his ass off at that one.

Thanks for the suggestion, and I will try to avoid maples if at all possible...
