Yeah, and my frame was one and only in the world
it's mass production n China. Serial work, serial quality level.
maybe you received first honest opinion ?
I'm servicing bikes for local club. That include few ( many ) cannondales; some himod, some not. Older models have absolutely better paint quality, but all are not finished as they should be. Even those which belong to people I ride with ( I watch carefully ) : ALL fit to same (mine) pattern. For me Cannondale is more religion than has something with any logic.
Quality is not the strength. For same money I ( anyone ) can have MUCH better made bike. From big brand, or from smaller one.
For me it look like Cannondale just rides on opinion about brand from the past. Plus their "innovations".... BB30 was already PITA, now it's BB30A .... same seatpost : 3 types, 2 from C, 1 from Enve. All above 200g. Tire clearance : 28mm, but low profile only on 15c rims only... Endurance ? Even my Wilier ( not endurance ) accept bigger / higher tires... .
trust me, simply run away
For the money , you can choose really fancy stuff. Like Scapin, Fondriest, Derosa, Colnago, .... "American" brands are so.... common. Basically behind every corner is at least one.
Do something different, unique. Something what describes you. Does it come from huge corporation making their stuff in China ?

I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that
