How's the paint quality on Surly's?
The reason I ask is I'm replacing a Wisconsin built Salsa Ala Carte that was chipping and flaking from the moment I took it out of the box. I had it powder-coated last year, but it just cracked at the head tube so I need to replace it.
I've also heard mixed reviews of the finish on Taiwanese Salsa's.
So being both owned by the same people, is the finish more durable on a 1 x 1?

I've never had any paint chip of my K Monkey. I've scratched it running into rocks, and worn it off the inside chainstays from racing in heinous mud, but overall it's thick and tough. Plus the skidmark brown sparkles in the sun.
