    New Spider 29 Comp paint cracks

    I have just bought a new spider 29 comp and after a few rides I found 4 cracks the paint of the rear triangle as you can see in the pics.
    I feel very disappointed as I have never experienced such an issue in any carbon bike I have previously owned.
    Has anybody else experienced the same problem ? Should I contact intense and ask for a rear triangle replaced under warranty ?

    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    That's why I bought a naked carbon frame. I don't see how paint chips are a warranty item. Now if the paint was defective and flaking or something like that yes, but a rock hitting paint is going to chip it

    If you want to keep your paint from getting rock chips you need to go here, Crankskins

    That's not a warranty issue, it's just paint chips from rock or chain strikes. I went with the raw so i don't have this issue. However, I have them on my yeti big top in several places. Just get helicopter tape and cover the prone areas if you are concerned about it.
