I thought I saw that but didn’t like to say. Maybe/hopefully an optical illusion.

Dont worry people...no crack, its a piece of helicopter tape to protect against cable rub, i know its not strictly necessary on titanium, but when the frame is perfect condition, then i dont want to affect it in any way.

Phew ! That’s a relief, it would have been such a shame

Sadly I had a similar experience with my Manitou FS with someone pointing out a crack, except that was a real one :x

Only upside for me after getting over the shock, that crack won pic of the month.


They say no publicity is bad publicity and a lot of folk will have looked/studied your Obed now :lol:
