so is anyone going through with marino's offer to buy the frames? 320 bucks doesn't seem to bad if you can bite off the shipping bullet!
or is everyone too jaded to even want them anymore ?

???? Reserve judgement. ????

It seems you’ve been shitting on them a long time, here and on STW.
How would them settling up with me and other customers change your judgement.

I’ve always said actions speak louder than words, if they settle up with people (rather than say they will) then credit where credit is due. There have been comments from people saying they have no customers, they have no frames, they never did, it’s all vapourware. I’ve corrected those people as i want the facts to be out, no exaggeration or misdirection.

I issued a retraction re customer service James and his role at sick on STW after he mailed me saying I was wrong to say he worked for them. He doesn’t, and never has.

If the facts make it seem like I’m shitting on them, well...

Am I the bad guy here? Have I taken peoples money and not provided what they paid for? Have I not paid the suppliers of those products? Have I maintained this is not a problem, while trying to sell more products I don’t yet have to people?

If they actually do something measurable about the problems, rather than tell people what they are going to do about it, or rewording old emails, I will highlight it, you have my word.

I'd have one.

The issue is spiked welds etc. Where was those Sick frames from? Taiwan, China or Peru?

Bloody ugly though.

Saying that the uglier the frame the better it rides I found.

caused by pretty poor welding technique could be anything from bits of filler rod or contamination in the weld because its rough arse and cheap

Apparently the spiked welds came via the China factory. Wouldn't happen with Marino (Peru). I'm sure Taiwan is fine considering the majority of us have or had a bike made there.

Thing about the far East quality is you get what you pay for so, if the welds are shit it's because......

Yeah for definite it’s not Marino’s frames that had any issues. I know for a fact that if he’s not happy with his work he will redo it before shipping. Dude cares far more for his customers then Sick ever has.
