I recently had to take apart the headset of my Cannondale Caad 13 road bike due to some clicking noises I wanted to diagnose. Therefore I also pulled out the fork a bit to inspect bearings and integrated crown race of the fork. Two things made we wonder: 1. When cleaning off the old grease I noticed a few small aluminium pieces. Probably coming the milled bearing cups? 2. I noticed a scratch inside the crown race. I can't imagine I made this scratch when pulling the fork out or reinserting it (made this whole process for the second time). Also I can't imagine the aluminium pieces caused this. Attached are some images of the scratch from regular distance and up close with a magnifyer. I'm pretty sure the fork came from the factory like that and this shouldn't be a big problem because the carbon is so thick in this place and should consist of multiple layers building up the crown race?
Can anyone confirm if my assessment is correct or should I contact my LBS about this to be on the safe side?
