    OMG, my bike is molting.





    Nah, the paint on it has been slowly but surely chipping/flaking off since a week after it was built up.

    It must be getting slower. You should get it anodized blue to prevent from being too slow, as to not obstruct those behind you.

    WTF? Definitely non-Load Bearing Paint. Seems unusual, never seen that on a bike. Would GF warranty it? Looks like a production defect to me.

    When enough comes off, I'm going to make it the fastest thing available... Polished Metal.

    My Gary is doing the same thing. Ever since it's first wash. The paint is "flaking" not chipping. The paint seems like a rather thin coat.
