Is My Frame Knackered?

edited July 2012 in Workshop

I have just bought a Planet X frame (second hand)
When it arrived I noticed it had a crack on the top tube.
I know that any cracks on a carbon frame is bad news, but I wasn't sure if it was just in the paint work.
To me it looks like something heavy has fallen on it, and I was thinking about sending back and getting a refund.
The pictures don't really show how bad it is to be honest, it looks worse in real life


Any information would be very useful

    If the seller didn't tell you it had a crack in the top tube (or even a scuff in the paint, if that's all there is) then you should have a case for asking for a refund.

  • Send it back, that's had a serious whack.

    I wouldn't be happy with that, I don't think I'd trust it.

    Hope you get a refund.

    It was a hideous colour too. I think you're well rid of it.
