I was wiping down the bike after giving it a wash the other day when I noticed this on the fork and would like to seek your kind opinion on whether it is a crack or just a paint chip.

I've been riding it for almost a year and a half now with no crashes and it would be really disappointing if i had to retire it due to a crack. :cry:

Thanks in advance!

From that photo I'd also say paint crack - nothing more than that.

Try the tap-tap test around the area of the crack to see if the sound changes resonance.
