Should I send this Bike Back?
I recently bought a frame and all the bits mail order as well. I asked the guy if he had any brakes on special offer and he said he had some Juicy 7’s.
They were slightly lower than CRC prices so I took them. When they arrived it was clear they were second hand. Then he changed the rims I had ordered to tubeless rims without telling me. Then the fork turned out to be a standard QR rather than a QR 15 I had requested. (The order was posted in three separate lots)
Now, I’ve easily bought £10k plus worth of stuff from this guy over the years and I’m pretty annoyed. Should I send it back or bite the bullet? Am I over reacting? Would really like to have a bike over Xmas though!Posted 7 years agoleystanMember
Am i missing something?? Nobody has suggested talking to him. Surely it would be sensible to pick up the phone and have a chat with this guy? Especially considering your past custom. Brakes may have been an oversight and he may be perfectly prepared to put things right?? Seems a bit ‘ baby out with the bathwater’ to just send everthing back before telling him how you feel. Don’t take any nonsense from him though…Posted 7 years agomartinxyzMember
Clean yer dropouts and axle. Then from now on, close the skewer when the bike is on the ground and push down on the stem to make sure the axle is firmly inside the dropouts before closing the skewer.Align the brake.it should be spot on each and every time you do this.
I cant think what goes wrong for you.Posted 7 years ago
