    Chip on carbon frame

    I have a chip on a carbon frame (near headtube). The length is less than 1 cm and its on the thicker part of the frame. I don't think it's a big deal, but this forum makes me paranoid. Any expert internet opinions?

    Hard to tell from the angle, but it looks like it's into the fiber weave, and that's not so good.

    If it was mine, I'd put a drop of paint or clear coat on it and ride. If you are worried, take it to the shop and see if they feel it needs further action.

    Fixed it for you ...

    If it was mine, I'd put a drop two part epoxy on it and ride. If you are worried, take it to the shop and see if they feel it needs further action.
