Last saturday, when I washing my bike I note this on my colnago eps. I want your opnion to know this is only a crack in the paint or a carbon crack. This is the last place I will expect see a carbon crack, in the lug.
What do you think?

Well, actually, that is a very common place for a crack to appear. I have a severed Colnago headtube on my office desk that has cracks like that. Having said that, that appears to be only in the paint. The lugs on an EPS are really beefy. In order to damage the lug, you would have to really hit it. Hard. In fact, your wheel would likely be folded from the impact.

My Madone has a similar crack (different location). It is just a paint crack, located at one of the junctions. It was examined, and the frame deemed to be on good shape. However, the only way to be sure is to take it to your dealer and have them check it out.

Looks like a paint crack to me.

White paint often does that.

Had a lot of similar frames on repair, better said on repaint...from the photo it looks like you don't have to worry at all
