Giant Trance 1 Advanced First Ride Damage
So first ride out on my Giant Trance 1 Advanced (carbon frame) and somehow this impact damage occurs on the seat tube near the bottom bracket. Don't remember hearing anything untoward but something must have happened. I was only riding fairly sedately in my local woods, 6 years on my aluminium bike and not a single mark in the same location on the frame, gutted. I now need to get it's integrity checked out before continuing to use - did someone say should have not bothered with a carbon frame!!! I know you can't be to precious with a MTB bike but come on my first ride out!! Anyone else had this kind of bad luck??
