Just asking because when I spend 4000 dollars on a frame I don't expect it to have silly flaws and it's annoying the hell out of me. Any replies will be appreciated.

You better not ever actually ride outside if that tiny flaw bothers you. Is that drive side? If so it will NEVER be seen once the necessary cranks are installed.

That decal around the B.B. isn’t symmetrical either.

It's the non driveside, but I know I'm petty just curious on what it is

Well I guess we're paying for the brand not the quality :|

Used to work in a shop that sold them and a few C60s came through with paint flaws. Put me off of them. Shop also sold Trek and Bianchi and Trek had the odd one but none of the Bianchis had issues.

Specialized is not particularly bad at painting anyway. My frameset (also costed $4000) had several flaws like this. I thought it was okay since they were on a clear coated and we could somehow fix them.
