I have used the red loctite in an industrial setting for work and you need a torch to heat up the metal and a torque gun to loose the bitch

Link to Album showing original ad as well as damage: https://imgur.com/a/qIvuCye

Reason for Reporting:

Shredhill159 listed bike as "nothing is damaged" - "5 months old" - "normal wear". Bike arrived with abnormally high amount of damage including: dented + scratched frame, punctured tire sidewalls, dented rims, damaged seat dropper lever, and many more scratches and scrapes over every component of the bike.

Seller refused to take the bike bike or refund. I asked to replace the rims and tires at minimum. Seller has stopped returning any texts or calls.

I paid with Venmo unfortunately. I filed a claim with them 2 days after I received the bike and contacting the seller, but they said that there's nothing they can do. My fault for not using Paypal

Don’t buy anything from telewacker. He ripped me off on a monster t. This thing doesn’t remotely meet his near perfect description. It’s beat to absolute hell, dented and scratched stanchions, squirting oil with every cycle. Dudes lucky he’s so far away.

How did you pay?

Hello all. I have the feeling that I have been scammed. I bought a wheelset from “betterthanyourlbs” one week ago. Ever since I sent payment (with PayPal purchase protection) all communication has stopped. The listing was changed to sold so I have some hope that it is just an irresponsible seller. How long would you all wait before filing a claim. The link to the wheelset is:

Thank you.

Hi, they’ve probably been away for new year etc, I’d give them until Friday and if no response/ delivery then file a dispute. The history and the way they describe the goods seems pretty legitimate so it’s probably just a holiday thing.

I am posting from a separate account to remain anonymous. I kind of have a reverse situation but with a buyer. So here goes it. This buyer bought my 2019 Evil. It had carbon rims on it. One of them was new. This guy bought my bike for a scoring deal over 60% off. I felt bad for selling it so cheap but I was strapped for cash. This guy receives the bike on a wednesday and doesn't say anything until a monday. On monday he tells me one of the rims is broken. I told him I'm sorry and that lets work this out since it must've been damaged in shipping. So this guy works it out with bike flights but it was only insured to $100. As I was waiting more issues popped up like the frame being cracked and the other wheel being cracked... I had photos that I sent the buyer before it was shipped. Nothing and I mean NOTHING was damaged or cracked the buyer must've ridden the bike because he sent photos of substantial damage to the whole bike. well the buyer decides to contact PayPal and PayPal makes my account negative! So I escalated the claim. and now here we are waiting for the paypal res. This buyer was totally trying to scam me

Sosburn, I originally thought of that but he sent photos of the damaged wheel. He even sent photos of it on his truck assuming that he is taking it out for a rip. I don't want him to return a bike to me that he already rode and most likely destroyed. it was sent in great condition and packaged really good, so I don't understand why he would do this. it looks like he intentionally cracked both wheels and the rear one was brand new!!! He also wanted my original receipt so he could warranty anything and this was prior to him buying the bike. after he filed with the shipping company he didn't really have an argument since the box was in perfect condition. I'm going to fight him with this and he doesn't have any evidence.
