the monocoque split which is i believe a common problem with these frames. it split right on the join of the two sides where they meet.

I would have put a couple of rivets in for good measure,but it seems to be doing the job 8) if the joint lifts just get some carbon glue from 3m and rub it under the edges that stuff is bomb proof 8)
You can also use it to build up the edge chips where the bb lock ring is :wink:

probably just leave the stays black as everything will be as you say, silver and black. i'm not into bright colors much, more the subtle look.
