I wanted to gauge how many riders have experienced a crack in near the bottom bracket on a 2012 Zesty 714 Carbon Frame.
Bike has been ridden for about 6 months after being purchased in March 2012 and was a crack has appeared just above the bottom bracket.
It is a weird position and looks like it must have been down to a stress fracture at a weak position on the frame. The crack is at a place that is well protected by the swing arms, so unsure how else it could have happened.
I was informed by a bike shop that they have seen problems in the same place and it may have been a manufacturing fault.
Expect it will be replaced by Lapierre, but would like to gain some feedback.
