S-Works Tarmac SL3 Paint Fade

Jay Aug 28, 2012 04:27PM PDT

Hi I was wondering about paint fade on the SL3. The frame I have is the natural one with the white and neon red accents... The red is now orange and even fading more. I really noticed it when I took off my Garmin Cadence sensor and there was a red stripe.

This is my second frame. I had a crack appear in one of the seams of my first one and this one is less than 1 year old...

I love my Tarmac SL3 and am curious if this is an ongoing issue... I had no paint or other issues with my previous frames (SL, SL2).

Thank you in advance for any information!

I would suggest taking your bike to your local Specialized dealership to have them take a look. Our frames do have a 1 year warranty against cosmetic defects...
