Just fyi, got a replacement frame for my 2020 SSE after complaining with the dealer (delf-destruction mechanism in headtube).
Cannondale accepted the claim w/o any discussion. Took 4 weeks from complaint to new frame. The frame came "bare bones", i.e. I had to transplant all screws, bearings and plastic parts to the new frame (the other solution offered was to send my bike in, which would have taken weeks).
The new frame indeed has metal inserts at the head tube.

I just dropped my fork out to do a headset service and thought I should check on what the headtube looked like, and suprise, that section is delaminated much like yours. Took some photos and submitted a warranty claim this afternoon, so I'm hoping for an experience much like yours.

Cant get rid of disc squeal on the new build. I'm using ultegra hydraulic callipers and Robert Axle after market thru axles with a brand new Dura Ace rotor. The bike builder thought the disc was slightly warped so trued it yesterday but the noise is back. The callipers have been adjusted too.

Anyone experienced this - could it be the non oem axles/ sticking pistons?!
Use Shimano L03A resin pads, not metal.
