    Had 3 since 2005

    Kona Coiler – bought it assured all was ok, turns out shock bushings were shot, cranks were shot, shock was totalled, headset mashed. Scrapped it. Never rode it

    Transition Dirtbag – bought it in good faith, headtube weld mysteriously cracked while it was sat in my house waiting to be completed…christ knows how that happened. Never rode it

    Trek Fuel 90 – bought in good faith (and in person unlike the other purchases which were online), rode it once and boom, rear triangle cracked.

    Never going near another bike as long as I live.


    I simply cannot believe how many bikes some people have had here. Seems to be 2 a year for some people?!
