I noticed today that I have a crack in the clear coat on the front of my seat tube just below the top tube.It is a about a inch long vertical crack. My bike is a Bianchi C2C full carbon fiber frame. Is this common for carbon fiber frames with the clear coat finishes? I showed it to my LBS where I purchased it. They said to keep a eye on it but the frame is still fine.

I had a Bianchi L'una with a similar issue. The hair line clear coat crack was there from day one, it never changed from that point. My advice, take a photo of it to use as a reference if needed at a later date. If a problem does arise, you should be covered for five years from the date of purchase, assuming that you are the original owner.
