Does anyone have any tips or tricks for telling if a scratch is a crack or simply a scratch? There’s a few spots on my Trance that I’ve been trying to work out.
I’ve tried the stuff I know, tapping with a coin to hear a dead spot, pushed it in it see if it widens and shined a bright led to see the bottom but still can’t tell. It’s not making any new noises under my weight, but I’m only riding around the block at the moment.
I’ve cracked carbon frames before and it’s been visually apparent, but this is different. I think both come from times I’ve put the bike down on rocks. Giant’s paint is terrible at times and the topcoat chips really easy on this frame.
I’ll add photos soon.
