warranty this frame again or not?

I have not ridden this frame. 09 Super Six. Funny thing is, this is a warrantied replacement frame for my 08, which failed at a bond.





So, would you ask for a replacement or not because of the chip above the hanger. Yeah, it's a very small chip, but it obviously happened when the mechanic installed the hanger. They didn't tell me about it.

The shop usually takes care of our team so I don't want to ask if there's no need to. But the spot it's in worries me. Guess that's what I get for going all carbon.

My thing is the thing is supposed to be new, not dinged. I guess I'll keep it but there's no way to know if this will be a structural issue until it fails.

Over a little chipped paint? Just get some nail polish or Testor's hobby paint and touch it up.

Perhaps I'm overreacting.

Well, at least my photos were good. Resized and everything.

It's just that the fork failed on me and had to be warrantied, the frame has failed already once, and now I've lost confidence in the frame.

I'm gonna race it Saturday.

If you lost confidence in the brand, just sell that thing and get something else. super sixx is made by canondale right?

Dont know dude, after the first rma frame i would have thought in getting another brand. There is a chance u got bad luck wiht yours? there is a chance that they get a lot of rma and nobody knows?

Good luck with your new bike
