God, would that ever piss me off. It's almost like those TSA jerk offs enjoy doing that kind of crap. Did I say almost?See picture below (TSA chipped my frame by throwing the lock they cut off my travel case.. even though I included the key inside a manila envelope tapped with clear packing tape and instructions to toss the key into the care after inspection) It bounced around and left a few chips like you see here.
No one mentioned it because it's useless.I am surprised that no one here has mentioned the simple test for a carbon crack. Take a large coin (a US quarter will do nicely) and tap the tube in which the crack appears. The tone that you hear will change from a high "tap" sound to a dull "tonk" sound if there is a crack. Tap up and down the tube to be sure that you hear a definite change in the tone that is being produced.
Atlanta and Chicago O'hare are two airports I'll actually pay a higher ticket price to avoid going through.I filed a complaint, which included the cost of repairing (really just a clearcoat respray) as well as the cost of a replacement frame.. never heard back.. I was pissed.... hell I am still pissed.. and I have to see those jokers twice a week (I am on 4 flights a week.. every week.. have been for almost 5 years now, always through ATL... I hate that place).
I fly out of BWI every Monday morning. DCA is horrible compared. I have not used IAD in a long time but the last time was painless for my flight to South Africa.Atlanta and Chicago O'hare are two airports I'll actually pay a higher ticket price to avoid going through.
You have to love little big people like TSA. They're low skilled, barely educated losers who suddenly get power to push people around and revel in it. I was once flying out of Austin TX and dealing with TSA and they were really nice and polite. I said to one of them, I appreciate you being polite to me -- you could teach the TSA guys in DC where I come from a few lessons. The guy smiles and says 'you're in Texas -- everything is better here.
Maybe you're tone deaf.Actually, i don't hear a change at all, no matter where i tap it sounds the same to me
That is a crack. Very similar to two warranty replacements I got for one on the bottom bracket and seat tube of a scott cr1. If it is under warranty they would replace it. If it is not under warranty you can repair it. 400-500$ depending on the area and the demand. They do pretty good jobs now days. I got a repaired frame and you can't even tell.
