After only a couple of rides on the Expert 120, the paint around the colar of the seat tube just under the quick release binder is starting to chip. Is this normal? The aluminum material at the tube looks pretty thin also. I don't know, the thin-nes of it just makes me worried.
Also, the binder is collecting dirt and sand on just about every ride. When I get home from a ride the first thing I do is clean the binder.
The openning at the bottom of the seat tube sucks because dirt gets in underneath. When I lower the seat for a descent I can hear all the little sand bits scraping around in there. It doesn't seem safe to have all that sand and dirt in the tube when riding.
Anyone else have these problems? Any suggestions?
