    2010 Gary Fisher Superfly 100 Cracked?

    I went out for a ride yesterday and as I was about to go out on the trail I noticed this crack in my frame. I marked it with a marker and kept an eye on it during my ride to see if it got any worse on my ride. The crack didn't get any bigger and I rode for an hour or so to give it a good test. I'm thinking it is a crack in the clear coat and not the actual frame. I'm gonna take it to my LBS shop sometime this week.

    I'm just wondering if anyone has had this same issue since it's in a spot where I don't think you would normally crack a frame?

    Looks like that is mainly the white paint cracking. Thats the only issue with usuing light color paint on carbon. What did trek say?

    My LBS said it was only the paint and to keep an eye on it to see if it got any bigger an they would send it in. It's been about a month an half since I noticed it and it's not any bigger so it must just be the paint, but I still check it after every ride to be safe.

    Let me know what you guys think. My 2010 Superfly 100 is 4 months old with a cracked swing arm. Just found out they are just replacing the swing arm, not upgrading to the 2011/2012 frame. One of the reasons I bought the 2010 knowing about the cracking issues was that if it did crack I would probably get a new '11/'12 frame. I heard that there may be improved 2010 swing arms. If that's the case, how can I tell I am getting one of those and not just another of the same that will last 4 months again.

    Sorry for the longgggggggggggggggg time delay in posting...I waited to take my bike to the bike shop till this spring. It was cracked and I ended up getting a brand new Trek Superfly 100 frame. It took about a week to get it so i'm happy.
