What if the original proof of purchase didn't have the buyers name? It would be transferable then?
Why can't more bike companies have transferable frame warranties..?
If you want a bargain then you take the chance, it's a competitive market which is selling by the bucketload so why would manufacturers potentially shoot themselves in the foot offering something none their direct competitors do ? I have a "lifetime" warranty on my cannondale, however it'd need new wheels and shocks as there's no direct replacement which could easily cost more than a good 2nd hand frame !
Don't think it work, as normally the "buyer" wants the item cheap as possible, and not welling to pay a good price for it.
I have a pair of forks, I was going to swap from one frame to a new one, so I serviced the forks, put BRAND NEW 15mm lowers (£200rrp) on them, only to find the steerer to short.
I Seen these forks go 2nd hand and in poor condition for £170 to £225. so put them up for sell for £300, with spare springs & new decals, and transfer the paper work for the lowers, I still got people offering me £200 to £250 for the forks! so when I say maybe but it comes with no transfer paper work etc they go and moan!
I find out soon if people are willing to pay extra for transfer warranties etc when I put the Soul 26" (large) up for sale!
Also I seen in the wanted ads someone after some Pike fork (they only been out a few mths) and someone else after a go pro3, again with in a few mths of them been released! so I take it they looking to pay less than half price just because it 2nd hand?
DO these people think the owners who spent good load of money on these products suddenly go I don't want it any more and going to sell it for 1/2 the money I paid for it??
