Repairing Knicks

Recommended Posts

Guys,

I have a pair of Cannibal knicks that are still relatively new but the stitching has come apart on inside of thigh for about 20mm. It rubbed on seat I think, never had that before but may be due to how I was sitting as I had a bit of back pain during that ride  

Can lycra be stitched back up by hand or does it need specialised equipment? Is it a case of bury them?

I am also concerned about rubbing on new stitch if not done correctly  

All thoughts and suggestions appreciated  

Thanks

Just sew 'em up yourself

Or bring them to a dry cleaners - most of them have a repair service

On the professional advice of BogFrog I have just had a go at sewing up myself. Time will tell if I end up like B@w pic 😂

Thanks

Interesting. I've had exactly what you've described with my Cannibal knicks, and have been wondering the same thing about stitching them up.

Maybe theyre a faulty batch of knicks if its exactly the same. Can you contact Cannibal for a replacement?

Doing a bit more investigating re the repair has been on my 'to do' list, but I keep forgetting about it. I might give them a call next week and see what they say. These knicks have been great (apart from the seam coming apart).
