    Jet 9 RDO crack near suspension linkage

    I was cleaning up my bike today when I noticed this hairline crack in the frame. I'm not the original owner, so I'm guessing warranty won't cover this. It's my first carbon frame, so could I get opinions? Crack in the clear coat or an issue that should be addressed promptly? Any ideas as to the best way to deal with this?

    Welcome to the club. If you read the other thread, niner said it wont catastrophically fail. Then again I don't really believe them. Hopefully they'll cover you under warranty since its a known manufacturing defect.

    Thanks man! I briefly skimmed the other cracked frame thread, but I didn't see a similar crack. Well, I'll just keep watching it and see what happens then. I'll update if there is anything worth noting.
