I would like to know if anyone has any experience with the paint on older Kestrel 200 SCI frames (or other types of carbon frames) cracking. My frame has 2 cracks on the non-drive side chain stay, two cracks on the junction between the seat stays and the seat tube (one on the top and one on the bottom), and one on the underside junction between the top tube and the seat tube. I believe these are just cosmetic paint cracks and not signs of something more serious since they occur in areas where there is most likely some flex in the frame, however, I would greatly appreciate any opinions or comments confirming or denying my assumption.
Thank you in advance for your help.
I have posted pictures of the cracks below:
