    need some help paint hair line or crack

    Hello everyone,

    I bought this bike and just noticed these three small cracks on the crank area . It is a carbon scalpel 2014 factory racing but I. Just hoping it's paint cracks, and not carbon crack. If so, What do you guys think, paint or carbon? I know its hard from pictures but not sure if this is something normal


    thank you all

    Mates 2015 Jekyll had a crack in the down tube and Cannondale said it was a problem with the white paint but would replace the frame as it was still in the first year of ownership. It was an innocuous looking crack like yours.

    Cannondale is good about their lifetime frame warranty. Submit a warranty claim and see what they say about it.
