I was cleaning my new bike frame today and noticed a couple tiny spots that were just like no bigger than large pin prick size nicks in the surface of the frame. Now I wouldn't think this would cause any problem but it made me wonder at what point would a nick mater? What dept? and can a nikc spread to a crack or is there any treatment for the surface of a damaged area? These questions are what encouraged me to make my first bike a ti bike. But I the ride of this bike made it seem worth the risks. Or maybe Im just parnoid.
