    If so, what came in the box (other than the frame)?

    I bought a new 2012 Covert. Not much came, I got some touch up paint and some cable guides I think. I’m not sure what else to expect?

    Shame you ordered the wrong headset. Good job I had too as that fit your one.
    Kimbers – am wondering if he will crash this one as much considering it’s carbon.

    Er, let me think, touch up paint, a manual (of sorts, A5 size, said thanks for buying, here’s how you route the cables, these are the bearing sizes, this is the warranty info), a Fox shock, dropouts, axle and seatclamp were attached. Think that’s it.

    Why?

    2011 Covert frame with shock, I don’t know as the bike shop took delivery and built it up. I don’t have a manual (frankly what would it say and surely I can find what I’d need on the internet or by asking the company) or any touch up paint.

    2011 Covert from Noah’s Ark – nothing besides frame/shock. I rang up and queried but was told that’s all you get

    2013 Covert bought last week. Shock, touch up paint and a few cable guides. And a bit of card showing you the cable routing. Dropouts and rear axle already attached as was seat clamp.
    What else you after?

    I bought 2014 Covert in yellow just before Xmas and the shop had fitted a CCDB air and headset for me prior to posting. I got the manual but that was it. No touch up paint or cable guides. Should I have received them?

    Fatgit – which model?

    Johnnyboy666 – I shouldn’t worry about the touch up paint, it’s proper spray paint, very thin and unless you do all the under layers correctly, a completely different colour to the finished frame!

    Frame, shock, axle, guides, shock manual, paint, instructions, stickers…and disapproving looks from the wife 😉

    I guess it’ll be the same (Bandit 26):

    2013 covert CF 26.
    No paint, or stickers and an apparent “piss off” from tweeks when asked where they were. They tell me paint and shock pumps aren’t shipped with frames any more. Sounds like a little black marketeering going on to me.

    A little miffed considering the spend on a “premium” frame.

    Defo no shock pump…and wouldn’t expect one (although one did come with my Ex8 which was nice…and sag meters)

    I spoke to Surf Sales before responding to your enquiry, they told me no paint in included with the current range of frames (though it has been in the past)

    Shock pump’s are typically not included (certainly for the brands we sell, though I can’t comment on everyone of course) and I checked with the guys who packaged the frame for shipping and they confirmed you received everything in the box that we had when it came in from transition.

    We’re a reputable company who have been operating for over 50 years, what benefit can we get in keeping a tiny bottle of paint (specific to a frame we no longer have) back to do some ‘black marketeering’?

    Indeed if the paint had been included we would have used it to touch up the little chip on the linkage (which was advertised and resulted in the frame having a 30% discount against RRP)

    I received a 2014 27.5 Bandit from Kustom Bikes, there were stickers,zip ties, cable guides, clips and touch up paint was also included, warranty card and manuals, axles etc.

    sounds like it is luck of the draw as to what you get.

    2014 Covert 27.5 from Kustom bikes – Same as above

    Apologies to Matt > I have implied unfairly that tweeks took the extras -, I was attempting humour. This was wrong and I understand that now. Although it is odd that 2014 bikes are getting paint in the box.

    Fwiw, Matt was perfectly nice and very tolerant of my demanding nature.
    I now accept that I shouldn’t have high expectations or expect to get what other people get.
    Life isn’t fair.

    I will add that transition USA have offered to send me some paint. I have zip ties, already. Stickers would have been nice tho :/

    Readers: draw your own conclusions

    Ah yes, cable guides, I was thinking bolt on types, but the ‘c’ clip over your hose to the guide on the frame were included. And stickers now I come to think of it.
