    This does not look good to me.

    Giant NRS C1, above the bottom bracket shell.



    It's hard to take a decent picture. There appears to be a small, jagged crack, with some greenish discolouration near the left end of the crack.

    Oh, I did not think to try buffing. Yeah, maybe that will work...

    Could be just chain rub, is it deep or superficial?

    It's not a scratch, that is very clear by the jagged nature of it. It does not look deep. All I can really tell is that the top clear coat is cracked, and perhaps separating from the fiber at the left end. It's hard to tell how serious the damage is using non-destructive methods. However, clear coats and paint don't usually crack if everything underneath is structurally sound.

    Yes, this was a warranty replacement for a 2005 NRS. Local Giant dealer has been contacted, and they are looking into the issue for me.

    It looks like Giant is going to come through for me again.

    2008 Anthem Advanced is headed my way!

    This is very reassuring. I'm about to pull the trigger on my first Giant, and part of the reason I've been looking at their bikes is the warranty.

    This is the third time I've had Giant warranty a frame for me.

    I bought a complete bike in 2002, and my MTB has just continued to evolve since then.

    One of the best thing about Giant, their warranty service is pretty good.
