Looks like Ti. Recent painted Ti is Chpt 3, but that bike has no fenders. Maybe painting Ti has its own peculiarities.

It's a brand new 2019 black edition superlight, with painted titanium parts. Seems they don't know how to paint titanium properly yet.

Paint from the bare dropouts I'd guess.

Paint, not powdercoat? (the steel Bromptons are powdercoated. Ti?)

If it's paint, I can't offer anything but sympathy.

Powdercoat? Wasn't baked hot/long enough,,,,

Warranty issue.

Not Powder coat ? , maybe surface prep was inadequate,
or just wear and tear from the few rimes of mounting the wheels was enough..

Its done now, just ride the bike? OR pull the fork, have it powder coated.?

maybe they are hard pressed to keep up with demand..
