New Ultegra Crank Logo Wearing OffBill RHIT

I just recently purchased a new bike with an all Ultegra set-up. I've put about 700 miles on it in 5+ weeks and now the "Shimano Ultegra" lettering on the cranks is wearing off. Is this normal? I've never had it happen before.
Yep...Mike Prince

This is not uncommon. It doesn't take much contact from your ankle or shoe to wear the lettering off. If it bothers you a lot, you can adjust your cleats to minimize the contact.
so what???jeez
