    Hi, just got my new frame! Are the marks above the eccentric pivot just lacquer ?

    Thanks

    my 95 is a carbon bike and I could tell your 66 was also , they look like they are done in a Urethane Base Coat Clear Coat rather than just lacquer or enamel.

    But I have serval spots just like that on mine.

    Most, if not all carbon bike frames have a cosmetic layer of carbon over the structural. For looks and protection. I would not worry, since this is on the surface. Google it...
