- issue with bike and distributor thoughts/advice
This reminds me of the time we sent a blinged up blur xc build out the door on a wednesday only for it to return the following wednesday shagged beyond belief.
Fella was a little taken aback when i said i recognised it from passing him during the strathpuffer and that we would not be warrentying for any of the wear.- was this you 😉Posted 4 years agoandyrmMember
did his bearing fail at 45k?
I’m making a hypothetical comparison to illustrate that 2 seemingly similar sets of circumstances can be very different.
Instead of trying to use SOGA or whatever as some kind of black & white thing or worse still, a weapon to try and force an unreasonable course of action, it would be better to be reasonable.
In the OP’s case, that “reasonable” course of action is to pop down to the local bearing suppliers and buy (very cheaply) some spare consumable parts and not waste time, effort, emotion and general internet bullshit bandwidth on something like this.Posted 4 years agoRamsey NeilMember

A bearing that wears out in 6 months is absolutely reasonable
No its not reasonable at all, if the wheel bearing in your car went in six months you would be fuming
But if the bearings on the crappy pedals that most bikes come with lasted for 6 months I would be both amazed and delighted .Posted 4 years agocompositeproMember

IM not dissagreeing on that at all iirc when I ran a shop pedals were pretty much swapped to avoid customers coming back with raging anger issuesPosted 4 years agoMarkoMember
though you now seem to be saying that the SOGA explains how the shop can reject it rather than insisting they “stand up for their rights”
I updated my knowledge by doing the quiz I posted a link to. Some people listen and learn, others just bury their heads in the sand. (And that is not aimed at you in particular JY).
