Please give me your opinion about this frame. This is a 1990 Specialized Epic Allez, carbon tubes bonded into aluminum lugs. It has been a great frame for many years.
I looked at it closely today and noticed an anomaly. The picture below is of the head tube area, and I am not sure what is happening here.
The gunk (?) appears to be underneath the clear coat.
1. What is happening here?
2. Does this impact the frame integrity?
3. Do I need to try and remove this?
I would appreciate your input, and would like to hear from anyone that has encountered this previously.
