Pinkbike Poll: Can Today's Mid-Travel Trail Bike Be Significantly Improved?
@warehouse: yes they do, but a lot of stores, esp ones that have good relationships and a level of trust with the brand, can do the whole process by emailing pictures of the issue, the warranty manager can then authorise replacement from stock to get the customer back on his/ her bike faster, then replace the shops stock in the post..

Pinkbike Poll: Can Today's Mid-Travel Trail Bike Be Significantly Improved?
@chillrider199: you miss my point, why should a store process a warranty for a bike brand that sells direct to customers... they don't.. If you walk in to any of the bike shops here with a YT, canyon or any other mail order brand, with a warranty issue, you'll very politely get quoted a price to fix it, when you then say that it's warranty and should be replaced FOC, you'll then very politely (or not) get told to get in touch with the brand direct and send it back to them.. Then begins the wait for new parts etc as well as the cost of shipping potentially your entire bike back to the manufacturer... I'm not saying thats bad, but you can't have it all, Mail order brands offer exceptional value with their builds, the down side is when things go wrong,

@Myfianceemademedoit: until it goes wrong and you have to ship it back to YT as your local bike store won't touch it.

Race Face Turbine R Wheelset and Vault Hub
@mgolder: actually you're wrong.... I'll use this as an example... you go to get onto a plane,, the outside of the plane is dirty, you walk in the door and the floor isn't clean, the seats are scruffy and there's rubbish in the setbacks... without even realising it your brain wonders if the plane has been looked after properly, will it break down... this isn't just me talking, this is well a well researched topic and there's plenty of reading to be done about it if you're interested.. yes it was most likely a broken keyboard,, and that's no big issue, BUT.. this is a press release, it should have been proofed and checked before being sent out.. it's a school boy error...

@properp: the point you're missing is this... this article has bee written and sent out by the Raceface marketing department... Now, on a subconscious level, wether you like it or not, when you read and spot all the mistakes and errors, it sows a tiny seed of doubt, doubt in the brand and doubt in the product. If a brand makes errors like this on their press releases, then how many issues are there going to be with the product itself. There's a VERY good book written by a guy called Jan carlson, moments of truth, you should read it, will change the way you look at things... in a good way.
