Cracked! Ok, so not really- it's just the clear coat. But do I really need to worry about a possible bike frame warranty a month out of the season? Perhaps I'm making a mountain out of a molehill, but the crack happens to be right where the carbon and aluminum are bonded. Boston winters are brutal on bicycle frames and components, but I've never considered riding a "beater" frame when the temperature drops mostly because of (1) cost and (2) significant changes in geometry. Thankfully, I shouldn't miss a day on the bike so no worries!
