You guys hear about sick bicycles and Marino, what a joke, they make excuses all of the time about communication and say they improved their communication yet they argue with people about refunds and orders on Instagram. Now their frame manufacturer came out publicly saying they didnt recieve payment due to lack of communication and will sell sick frames off themselves. They need to give up.

It's pretty well known, and has been pretty well known for just on two years.

Pinkbike gets a lot of f*ck off from me for hosting those guys, and flat out hosting a few of their lies in order to help them out rather than the customer. PB really f*cked up here imo.

That said, Marino is completely innocent as far as I can see. They got orders that they gave the correct ETA and pricing for, Sick didn't talk honestly with their customers. f*ck sick.

been banging the "f*ck sick bikes" gong for a while now. Marino is totally in the right to do what hes doing. Hes a good guy who got screwed big time. My frame from him should be done by the end of the week.

Magnetic flat pedals yes or no? I need new shoes so I'm considering going with magnets. Would be for my Enduro and DH bike.

Pretty funny. They'd be worth a lot more without a sick logos on them imo. Without that sick logo they're a cool handmade frame from Marino. With that logo on they're trash imo

As I stated in the sick thread I was gonna get one until I heard they were Marino frames. Not because it’s a Marino frame because I own one of his ‘Inspired’ trials frames and it’s dope but because they were hugely marked up with longer lead times then he usually has. Seemed stupid to spend nearly double and wait twice as long for literally an airbrushed logo that read ‘Sick’ instead of ‘Marino’.

I think it would be kinda cool to buy one now, to help out Marino, and then cover the logo in tape or something

Magnets. It's a new thing. Instead of a cleat you attach a metal plate. It's supposed to lock you in like clipless but safer as you can pull your feet off when needed

Sounds gimmicky but I dunno. Nothing wrong with regular clips.

Nout wrong with flats to be fair

All I have heard is heavy. Magnets are not light.

Clippless is super easy to get out of once you spend some time on them.

Ultimate trolling, you at the trailhead and a sick rider passes you saying excuse me, he rides the frame you paid, by getting it half price from the manufacturer of the 'frame designer' you paid your hard earned cash, that ignores you since you fully paid for it last year or the year before that, who knows...
