ive just dicovered a couple of very small cracks in my 5 year old titus. Im not gonna moan about the bike at all, i have given it loads of abuse for 5 years and its been great.
anyway its pretty much too small for effective pictures so ill give go at describing.
One crack runs around top of the top tube where it meets the seat tube for around 1.5cm it is about a hairs width wide, hard to see but can be felt. it doesnt run through the weld but where it meets the top tube. The second crack is accross the same weld at about the 9pm position (side of the bike) on the top tube- seat tube junction this runs accross the weld at 90 degrees and into the top tube about 1cm also only a hairs width wide.
As you might be able to tell i may have looked at it for a little too long!!!
question is am i being rediculous,do i try and forget about it and ride anyway? im gonna get it checked out by LBS but probly wont be able to get there till next weekend and im supposed to be riding wednesday evening.
(enter endless stories of 'i rode my bike for five years with half the down tube snapped off' etc etc.....)
