I crashed by last carbon frame big time time last year, so have built up (with the help of insurance) a new bike based on a Giant TCR SL (that's my claim to it being a light bike, it's just over 14lb for the build) , finally got it on the road (done 60 miles in total) , gave it it's first clean at the weekend and found some strange 'marks' a dull patch on the top tube and little lines, and some little lines coming down from the steerer on the other side,
I don't know if I should be nervous, or just get on with it ... think this is going to be my last carbon frame
Any advice appreciated, I know it's hard to tell from pictures, I'm a little disheartened at the moment as but a lot of effort into this build, it appears to be in the laq, lots of experiance with alloy frames, not a lot with carbon ... thoughts ?
