Select Page – Dead on Arrival

I ordered this high-end bike from and it arrived so damaged that it’s unusable.

The problem is in the threads where the seat height pull-pin should screw into the chassis. Those threads were damaged, probably during shipping (you can see a bit of packing foam still clinging to the bike).

This damage makes it impossible to screw the in the pull-pin assembly, meaning you can’t safely mount the seat at any height… so unless you want to ride a bike with no seat, it’s now just a $1,300 paper weight.
