    2013 R3 FD bolts

    Has anyone with a 2013 R3 had any issues with the frame around where the FD bolts are? Specifically the bolt "closest" to the front wheel? I run SRAM Red 22 on it and absolutely no one can get it so the Yaw FD works properly and just last week I noticed that the frame has some weird bubbling/ cracking in the paint and of course I can't tell if it's cosmetic or structural, but every time the FD is adjusted it goes out of adjustment the minute I start using it.

    It’s a braze on mount installed by Cervélo. I have a picture but have no clue how to post it here.

    .. search for a bike workshop that can handle the task and renew the rivets for the fd socket after looking at ..

    Yeah, so, apparently it could be the rivets, but how do they "renew" them? That is what I'm wondering after talking with Cervelo yesterday and of course I forgot to ask.

    They drill out the old ones and pop in the new ones. Most shops can do this.

    Thanks, I ended up following up with the Cervelo rep. The bike is at the shop since the weekend and I am just waiting patiently to hear now. Hoping one way or the other my FD issues will be solved after this. Should the frame & bolts be fine, then the culprit could be that I need a SRAM FD shim due to seat tube angles and SRAM Yaw FD technical specis as checked by the SRAM tech support head.
