Probably one of these Park Frame Alignment Tools
Would guess he means that the headtube is not ovalised.
And the comment “Intended Use: XC light freeride all mountain.” looks like the sort of bollix you get on bike ads.Posted 8 years agono_eyed_deerMember
Check this one out:
It’s quite ‘subtle’ but there are some true gems in there. Take for example the quote (sic)
“I used my park aligment tools to check the rear end and it,s straight and true.”
“Checkes carried out.
+Whole frame: For ware, cracks, dents or any sign of stress damage.
+Rear shock: Adjustments Air/oil pressure and bushes.
+Headtube: shape and condition”
What has this guy been doing?
Apparently, a Giant Anthem is for:
“Intended Use: XC light freeride all mountain.”
…and if you take it out for a ride it will be your:
“dependable partner in crime”
Yes, well, indeed.Posted 8 years agozangolinMember
Maybe not the most grammatically correct Ebay add but otherwise a straight up & honest add. So why try and put the seller down? Does it bother you that much? (my grammer + spelling aint perfect)
no_eyed_dear – I guess you’re showing your own ignorance about frame alignment tools there – yes they do exist! What is wrong with checking if the head tube is round & is not ovalised from crash damage?
Smacks of that particular mindset some cyclists have i.e. demeaning about any rider who dares to not have the right bike or the right piece of kit or calls it the wrong thing.
All I can say is lighten up.Posted 8 years ago
