Hello guys,i'm new in this group.
I wanted to talk about something which has been bothering me since i bought my bike from,LIONS CYCLE,dhaka.
I Currently live in Dhaka,Bangladesh.
My Trek Marlin 2013 frame paint which is "true blue" is chipping paint very easily.First i thought i may have hit something hard.Later this problem just got worse -_-
I even put full frame protective film,over over the bikes frame.
The blue paint is STILL chipping on some areas,revealing a White layer.
i recently had a crash too,which completly bruised off 2 huge areas of the rear upper tube of the frame,because my derailleur hanger broke,the derailleur got loose,stuck on the chain and i was at ~30kmph travelling down a slope.
You can see the pictures to get an example.I dont know if its common or what...But i expected some good quality paintjob at least from TREK.
The Store i bought the bike from,just lets me off by sating "put blue nailpolish on those areas"
As far as i know,Trek frames do have at least a year of paint and decals Warranty :/
My Bike is around just 8 months old now.This problem started right after 1 month after i bought the bike.
SO WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW?
