    Ouch...the mighty Specialized red paint seems to be a costant issue. My 2014 marathon shows a tiny bit of that in the same area but again it is very tiny compared to what you're showing.
    Ask your LBS,they should replace the frame,this is how I've got a free upgrade to a 2014 Marathon frame over my paint defective 2014 Expert.
    How come there's a Shimano derailleur ? I should put that aswell,the Sramsomething is already giving me tune up issues...
