Just bought my trek 8000 / 09 looks amazing. been out on it feels great (I don't as I've not biked for 8 years) on the trails. Only complaint is the paint on the bottom tube has misty white speckles where it's meant to be black, anyone else have this problem.
I'll have a slice

    Nice bike but you'll probably get more responses on the MTB forum.

    Found this tread in the MTB section, but it wasn't concerning the white speckles. :?

    I reckon it'll be salt of some sort. Was it wet when you were out? Might even be little chips from stones or gravel.

    it was top of the lower tube, So cant be chip damage or water. Think spray job was a bit crappy. not that noticeable. only been out on it once cause of crap weather, wandering if I should take back to store.
