Hi all,
I have these 2 scratches on my alloy bike's headtube:
The bigger one - lower right on the headtube from your point of view
The smaller one - upper right on the headtube from your point of view

I wouldn't ask this question if it wasnt the headtube, but do you think that these scratches may cause any weakness in the headtube or they are just cosmetical ?
Thanks.

They're nothing. Now, if they're were somewhere other than the headtube I'd be worried.

Just kidding. You're fine.

Thanks for answers.

No Problem. Go ride.

It looks like the bike fell off of a vehicle?
Exactly. I forgot to take it off the roof rack when entering my garage door. Luckily the connection between the car roof and the top aftermarket rails was the weakest place, so everything got off the roof - the rails, the racks and the bike on one of the rack. I do not care much for the rails of my 15 years old car, since I am going to buy new one next year anyways. I care only for the bike and the racks. The racka are fine and this is the only place where the bike has damage.
