Before I go any further, this morning I sent an e-mail to Cotic with photos about this so am waiting to hear from them, but while I await their response I thought I’d ask the STW Massif what they think.
I bought a BFe frame direct from Cotic last April. Since then it’s hardly been ridden (4 times in total due to serious injury when I came off another bike at BPW).
While changing the tyres over this weekend I noticed these weird marks around the toptube/headtube weld which has got be a bit concerned.
It’s being run with XFusion Slants on the front if that helps, although I think it should be able to handle them OK.
what difference would our opinions make? I’d have thought it’s only polite to give Cotic a reasonable timeframe to respond
Oh I am, was just interested, that’s all.
Not looking for any flaming torches or anything. Just not got any friends about at the moment to talking to about it so thought I’d ask you lot. Didn’t realise it was an offence to ask opinions on anything while waiting these days. 🙄
See, your problem there was you cleaned it. If I’ve learned anything from riding bikes it’s that clean bikes tend to have issues. If it’s not clean you can’t see the issue, thus the issues don’t exist. I’m pretty sure it’s the mud that holds most of my bike together.
