Well.........I think it happened......won't say what brand so don't ask, but how can you tell if you're frame's cracked? Today while changing out a bearing on a linkage I noticed some small cracks in the powder coat around the seat-tube area welds and the shock mount. I was like........F*$&*#$ because the powdercoat is clearly cracked. I'm assuming it's a crack but not 100% sure. What really pissed me off was a crack as well on the rear chainstay. So I knew my 2 year old frame now bit the dust. What really shocks me is I've done no drops, no jumps, nada of that sort (I have other bikes built for that stuff) and this was simply a trail rig. Nothing but riding to the trail and down it (mostly XC'ish stuff) so when I found these possible cracks I got worried. Do cracks in the powdercoat usually mean a crack in the material? What places can you ride with a crack and without one? In my case of a shock mount and the seat-post mount (which is a interupted seat tube) I don't think that these cracks I can ride with. Hell I could be riding climbing a hill sitting and have it just give away. Same with the shock. Just curious, I've read alot about cracked frames and such but can't find too much info on the symptoms of a cracked frame or what to look out for and watch for.
