Hi, newbie looking for advice. one year old Fox evolution 100mm front suspension. washing the bike just now i noticed a 4 or 5 cm raised bubble or perhaps crack on the inside of the lower section of the suss. its not near the brand sticker its on the inside facing the wheel and is only raised by 1 or 2 mm. looks ugly but i am hopeful its not going to effect the function. Lbs closed today so interested in any comments.

    Sounds like you have some small aluminium oxidation under the paint, nothing to worry about and probably cost more to fix (aesthetically) than any 'value' that would add.

    That said I'd be trying for a warranty/SoGA claim as it shouldn't happen after a year, my 06 forks are still fine in that respect.
