I bought a trek 5.2 but when I had it shipped the shipping company damaged the box..blah blah......the frame whent back to trek for a re paint. I just got the bike back and the serial number is different is that normal??
Could still be the same frame. The Serial on the US carbon bikes is a decal. If there was any question about the scratches being more than scratches then they may have replaced it. Either way, sounds like they took good care of you.
Well just an update I got the frame back and Trek did take care of me the job is better thanit was the first time. The LBS said that Trek had some problems with paint flake on the first run of frames but have since changed the process. Bike looks great.
