    2009 Epic carbon cracked?

    I have a 2009 Epic expert carbon and it looks like it is developing a crack right on the non-drive side of the BB. It is a little more than 1/3rd of the way around the BB shell. Has anyone had a crack like this on any Specialized bikes? Warranty time?

    Here's a low quality picture. better quality pic on its way.

    doesn't look like a crack to me. the shell where it sticks out of the side of the frame is aluminum. i see some damage on the shell where the paint is removed (not sure how you got this where it is at, usually the same thing is on the drive side where the chain drops to) but that is not a "crack".

    though the picture isn't very high quality... if there is a crack a better pic will help identify it.

    Is this just a crack in a few layers of the paint from flexing of the BB area?

    If you bought this bike new, you need to bring it to a Specialized dealer for inspection. Asking for opinions on a forum is not going to due you ant good. You know what they say about opinions....
