Trek US Postal Service issue....2006 vintage (guessing)
Purchased used so no warranty.
Rear shift cable stop broke off of the chain stay.
I think this is a difficult fix. Anybody have experience with this? It's my friends bike so I, being the good friend and very willing to spend somebody elses money, think he should buy a new frame....any other thoughts?

Use a good quality epoxy...self repair.....This isn't a case of carbon failing..The cable guide was glued on by Trek... glue it back on....If he isn't comfortable doing it himself, have someone experienced with epoxy do it.... The fix will be stronger than the frame

Agree with Dave, this is not a big deal. And if you don't like the glue approach, there's always the classic Campagnolo rear derailleur cable stop. Not sure if it would fit the Trek chain stay, but it can't be that difficult to fabricate or have someone fabricate something like that.
