    ENVE steerer tube indent

    Hey all,
    I pulled my enve fork out the other night to swap out to my suspension fork and noticed an indentation on the steerer tube from the stem. The indentation goes all the way around, but is almost unnoticeable on the front, but fairly noticeable on the back. Is this a common thing for carbon steerer tubes or would this be cause for concern? I'm a bigger rider at 185 pounds and I also do not baby the bike by any means.ENVE steerer tube indent-img_3405.jpgENVE steerer tube indent-img_3400.jpgENVE steerer tube indent-img_3407.jpgENVE steerer tube indent-img_3406.jpg

    Would touch base with the manufacturer on that.

    I dropped them a line, but always like checking in with other people sometimes you don't get real world responses from corporate.

    Back in my kayaking days we would paddle fiberglass and kevlar kayaks and the topic of stress risers when doing repairs came up a lot. These photos remind me of what we used to be weary about. Can't help but think that that area would be a stress riser on the steer tube. For clarity, not saying this was a repair.

    Always good idea.

    Good input, those pics scare me as larger agressive rider, I'd be scared to ride that fork.
    Get off the couch and ride! :)

    I have to say I contacted Enve on the day I made this post within 10 minutes of the email a carson from Enve contacted me, I sent the fork out that day and they already sent me a brand new fork that arrived today. Probably one of the best customer service experiences I have ever had.
