I probably shouldn't have, but I just bought this 2016 CAAD 8 second hand for cheap. I'm trying to work out if it's safe to ride.
There are cracks all over the carbon fork (and in the rest of the frame, but lots in the fork). The cracks mostly only affect the white paint, but there are blemishes to the black base layer in some areas.
I've sanded away two of the worst looking bits, the carbon seems smooth underneath.
Anyone have any insight? It all feels smooth, and doesn't obviously fail the coin tapping test.
Many thanks, Matt
