A (very pissed off) update on my build.
I got the frame today and was really excited to be building it up. Then noticed (on trying to put the rear wheel in) that the frame has, probably, transit damage and the gear hanger has been bent forwards about 1mm. This has closed the dropout to the point where I can fit neither a hope pro 2 standard qr end cap, or an old-school 9mm axle into it.
I was halfway through the build up as well. I am not happy. I am absolutely certain I have not damaged it myself.
I am hoping that if I drive to Rotherham on Saturday morning, something can be done and I can leave with a new frame, or have it fixed.
This is a 2 hour round trip for me, but I am so desperate to have a bike I am willing to do it.
Planet X customer service has been brilliant so far, I just hope that is going to continue!
As Blur once said "this is a low".
