Big Thanks from the Downtube!

I wanted to thank everyone for their support with the Cindy fiasco. She was rough on the message board......but she was 1000 times worse on the phone ( trust me ).

On a positive note the new 9FS bikes are almost on their way. I will create a new thread with some photo's and minor details.

Once again a big thanks to everyone.
Yan

PS. On her thread, which seems to have been deleted, I saw that I did not respond to a customer warranty issue. Does anyone recall who that was?

Forgot to mention I am teaching in the Bahamas. If anyone from the forum will be in Nassau drop me an email. I would love to welcome anyone.


Thanks,
Yan

Not at present. Yan hasn't told me whether he's getting any more made.

They never sold well. Hence we decided to use 9 silver and add a rigid threadless fork to the site for people to make their own no suspensin bikes. Threadless 20" forks will be a few months out.

Thanks,
Yan
