I know it’s been put on the aggro ht thread but if anyone’s interested Marino are now selling sick frames off that haven’t been paid for. Could be a bargain! Check his insta page or Facebook for more...

yeah saw that, already sent a message, i will probably blast the sick logo off cuz i dont want anything to do with them

Apparently Marino air brushes the sick logo on so shouldn’t take much to shift. Though blasting would be satisfying.....

Nothing like getting kicked while you are down. Hope the Sick guys can pull it around I want to see them succeed.

Poor little guy was only a couple days old and he had to go back in for surgery.

Double chainstay transplant. I screwed up on the amount of clearance for the drive side crank. I really should have built it up for a test ride before I painted it.

Bummer. They aren't those carbon cranks I've heard about that are thicker than normal are they?

Nope. Just noob builder mistakes. This whole frame was a bodge, I didn't do any drawing / CAD for it and my 'eye ball it looks good' bit me in the ass on this. Live and learn.

It was raining yesterday when I finished it, need to ride it tomorrow and race it on Saturday so it won't likely get a paint fix.

TOTALLY! I like to think they started out with good intentions but, (from some of thier other failed ventures an Internet blogs about starting a business/brand with no capital..... ) they seem no better than shady used car salesman. They believed thier own hype an played the social media game which came back to bite them in the ass.
They owe a lot of people a lot of £$€

The bike industry is shady enough without these guys

I would say this may be a fair assessment re: sick's blunder. As I said way earlier, these guys are board-line criminal..First I hope all who are owed any monies, get it back, second these guys should not ever be in business, Ever.
