I have a 2013 mid-season Scale 740, and I noticed the paint cracked in the white lettering. My LBS has contacted Scott and they are warrantying it, but I thought I'd share since Scott claims it's a one-off problem they've never seen before.

My bike was one of the limited 650b's released the ladder part of 2013...I think there was only 2000 of them made, and Scott doesn't have that frame any longer so they're sending me a 2014 frame. I'm bummed about that, but at least it'll be fixed.

I really really like the stealth look, but it's a brand new bike so I'm going to go ahead and get the new frame. I hate it, but I'd rather have a perfect bike that I paid for. Plus I'm afraid water and grit will work itself into the cracks.

I like the sort of blacked out look as well. I just bought my '13 so i'm not sure if i should just let it go and chalk it up to getting a good price on it, or go for the perfect bike thing. To further complicate it, i didn't buy mine from my LBS so that would make the process a little more trouble i imagine.

I wish they were stickers so i could just peel em off and get some new ones.. possibly in a different color. Oh well, at least it is hardly visible.

meh I say deal with it as likely it is a decal/paint material issue. (New frame will probably exhibit same in same amount of time since this is not actual frame issue unless they identified a material supplier problem and corrected it...but you'll never know that unless you are in engineering/materials).

But yeah I understand the money spent part.
