    New question here. Is my RIZE 3 frame / seat stay / seatstay craking / breaking?

    Hey,

    The other day I cleaned up my bike I noticed my seat stay (seatstay) shows what it might be a crack :-( (See pictures)

    My frame has always had something like a little whole which I've always thought it was a paint bubble but now it seems to either be craking or the paint is falling off.

    I'm second owner of this bike, so warranty is off.

    Do you think is cracking? breaking?

    Any advise will be appreciated.

    Bad news: Yes it's a crack...Good news: You can just go ahead and buy new seatstays through your cannondale dealer or maybe on eBay.
