    2007 Specialized Epic Expert Frame crack or just paint crack?

    Got reviewed by Specialized Rep and called it a crack.

    Getting new 08 or 09 Ti Epic Marathon frame. It should be done by this week or earily next week.

    It looks like a paint crack, like where excess paint dried between the frame and the weld. But I could be wrong so I would still take it to the dealer.

    That dealer must be smoking crack.

    Good thing you called Specialized directly.

    Yeah no kidding, that first dealer tried to rake you over the coals. Can we get the name of that dealer?

    Sounds like he just wanted to charge you $100 to take your bike apart and PRETEND to send it to Spesh and PRETEND it was destroyed in the test and sell you a bike out of his store at a "discount".

    So what do you guys think? Paint crack? or Frame crack? I might just have to chip the paint in that area and find out?

    I can tell you that I will never go back to dealer to buy anything. I am not sure if it has anything to due with the fact that I didn't buy the bike from them. He made me think that I am screwed and need new bike. He was giving me crap about size of my bike. It's size L and he was telling it it was too big for me. Which I told him that I am very comfortable with size. I am 5'10" which is boarder line of L and M.
