|Possible Cracked Frame?? What do you think?||lancerdad|

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
I just bought a Raleigh Grand Prix Aluminum Road Bike.
Today, I was cleaning the bike after a ride and I noticed something odd.
On the top tube, approx 6-7 inches from the seatpost, It would appear that a hair about 3/4 of an inch long is under the paint.
It is very thin and just off to one side.
Do you think that is a defect in the paint or maybe the frame is cracked?
Wouldn't that be an odd place for a crack?
Would a bike shop be able to tell FOR SURE?
What do you think?
Thanks in advance,

|A crack will most likely crack the paint. What you describe as a "hair under the paint" sounds like a raised ridge. Can you feel the ridge? If this is the case, it is most likely just what you describe rather than a crack.|| |
