Taking SCARY out of used bikes, one bike at a time.
I bought this bike thinking it’s an awesome deal with high-end components and a strong brand name. And when I picked it up, it looked in excellent condition.
But as I stripped down the bike (like all of my refurbished bikes), cleaning all the grease off the frame, I found a crack on the seat stay. I’m glad I bought this bike. Because to even an expert like me, I missed it. And someone else could’ve purchased this one, and how the crack is set, failure would be inevitable. ￼ I’m more than happy to take this one off the market for safety reasons.
So be careful out there when looking at used bikes. Something as small as this crack could put you in harm’s way.
