Thanks for the response.
Yeah, this is a ridiculous situation. I have asked Cannondale to send more framesets to the dealer, so I can look at a few of them, and choose the best one.
The quality really is shoddy.
Other stuff I noticed on the latest one they sent;
-Brake bridge between seat stays is not symmetrical
-Brake boss on bridge is extremely scrappily cut, with bits of carbon sticking off it
-Every single sticker is not straight; total rush job with no care taken in application
-There are sections where it looks like they have used touch up paint to paint over areas
It really is absolutely shoddy work, especially for a frame that is so expensive.
This is the downside of a manufacturer giving up and out-sourcing production. When Cannondale manufactured in the U.S. they were in full control of the quality and it was high. This is why people go high end Trek for their made-in-USA bikes or Colnago for a c-59 or c-60. Of course Cannondale could bridge this gap, but by out-sourcing their are additional problems. Clearly Cannondale valued cost of production higher than other considerations.
