    Cannondale's QC

    I just notice that the stickers of the frame are not line up correctly on my Prophet. Is this normal? It doesn't bother me much but I wonder about Cannondale's QC these day.
    Please share some thought.

    Thanks

    You worry way too much... and it looks to be under the tubes right? Take the bike, head outside, ride the thing and stop worrying about the light cosmetic flaws that ants have to deal with...

    There is not much to be done about that. Positional variances during decal application will cause the decal to have a small gap that can vary from bike to bike. A little forward and the decal overlaps. a little back and there is a gap. This is what happens with tapered tubes and hand application.

    I'm not joking but I think I spent too much time looking at the bike than riding it
    I'll take Dan advice. Shut up and ride

    It's what makes your bike completely unique in it's own special way. Kind of like a snowflake.

    (Was that sappy enough to make anyone throw up?)

    Post some pics of it from further away. That looks like a pretty cool paint scheme.

    Same misalignment on my Prophet SL. One sticker even crumpled up beneath the clearcoat (the big one on the top tube saying "Prophet SL"), when I had on the bikerack of my car. Bummer.

    Wow. A little picky, are we?

    I prefer my stickers to be aligned to within a tolerance of 0.001", just like my frame.
