I follow the road.cc for quite some time, but registered just now, since I experienced a shocking revelation yesterday while inspecting my FD.
On the very second ride with my new TCR Advanced I dropped the chain on a slight incline. It's my first carbon bike and I did not give it a secong thought at that point. I also always ease on the pedals when switching into the small ring, since I want to avoid exactly that. However, it seems to have left a pretty nasty damage on the chainstay.
It looks (at leas I hope) like mostly paint damage, except for the lower part. I'd like to hear your more experienced opinions, before I decide what to do next.
