Hi everyone,

I follow the road.cc for quite some time, but registered just now, since I experienced a shocking revelation yesterday while inspecting my FD.



On the very second ride on my new TCR Advanced I dropped the chain on a slight incline. It's my first carbon bike and I did not give it a secong thought at that point. I alsousually ease on the pedals when switching into the small ring, since I want to avoid dropping the chain in the 1st place. However, it did drop this tine and it seems to have left a pretty nasty damage on the chainstay after being sucked in.

It looks (at least I hope) like mostly paint damage, except for the lower part. I'd like to hear your more experienced opinions, before I decide what to do next.

It looks only paint is damaged. Put some tape around damage to prevent further paint chipping, say "shit happens" and ride on. At least thats how its done in MTB world Big Grin
You can of course complicate everything roadie style and take it to some carbon repair shops to X-ray scan it for damage and possibly repair it Big Grin
