Maybe that was your problem?glueslug said:You may have read a thread I started a little over a week ago regarding my new 08 Turner black frame and its black decals. http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=477550
Well, the story continues. After the first ride I was placing my bike back on its wall stand when I noticed a scratch in the paint. I thought that is was a shame that I had already put a ding in that beautiful smoke black paint, but it was only a matter of time. I ran my fingernail across the scratch, curious as to how deep it was, when all of a sudden more paint kept coming off. But in a perfectly straight line...I kept scratching at it and scratching at.
Here is before:
And here is after:
So, anyone have a guess as to what step was missed during frame prep?
While I am relieved that it wasn't a scratch, I am a bit puzzled by what seems like a unusual quality control issue before the frame was shipped out. Not that it was too difficult to remove the paint over the decal (about an hour and half) but I am surprised that I would have to do it at all after spending a good chunk of money on a handcrafted product.
Oh, and this frame is amazing. Love the ride, it is like nothing I have ridden before.
