Just received a new paydirt gold Bronson and the paint on top-tube seems thin and blotchy. It's not like the other parts of the bike which look more solid. Thoughts?

You spent a lot of money - if it bugs you they should make it right.
Problem Is they might choose to repaint it. You may have an alternate ride so maybe no biggie for you.

Hope they take care of you.

That's unacceptable. Definitely return it. Some people think they have blotches, but it's really just a thin coating and you're seeing the carbon layup. That's not the case here though. Good looking bike and I'm sure aesthetics had something to do with your purchase, so I'd definitely return it.

Thanks for the replies. Everyone in my family says it doesn't look right. I bought the bike for my 12 year old son from backcountry.com because our local shop could not get me one. I just filed a warranty claim with Santa Cruz and will hopefully hear back soon. They should make it right. The photos don't show it but the thin paint issue is on both sides of top tube. I'll report back when I hear from Santa Cruz.
