- Unhappy Sick Bicycles Customers. BEWARE!
Have you checked out the AM:FS FS frame?
How many times when designing that frame did they think “ooh, that’s a bit flexy/snappy, better stick a brace in”? It’s practically a space frame!
It looks quite a lot like a tubular version of the Orange single pivot design to me..Posted 1 week agodissonanceSubscriber
it turned up which was nice
I tend to consider that the bare minimum service to be honest. Nice would be something beyond that.Posted 1 week ago
Whilst far too uncool for a Sick bike I did recently buy a Bird. Their clothing range does seem a bit weak but they were good at the boring business of providing me a bike of the requested spec within a couple of days of sending them the order and money.Also managed “nice” in my eyes by providing good advice and initial setup help.pimpin gimpMember
My “it turned up” comment was a bit tongue in cheek to be fair, but I’m still pleased to help them make some profit to deliver some awesome bikes. No doubt they’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way but I like their intentions (or intentions as I see them) and I hope they succeed.Posted 6 days agotomhowardSubscriber
What would happen if you cut out the middle man, blagged one of Sick’s designs, tweeked it ever so slightly and got it made by Marino or similar for a fraction of the price?
Might speed up delivery…
Even if you copied the designs verbatim, it’s not like they can afford the copyright lawyers… I reckon that’s why they never put full geo details on the web, only indications like ‘slack AF’ and ‘this long’.Posted 6 days ago
