well crap new bike has ding on top tube
just got my surly steamroller complete last week, only rode it around the block before dropping off my wheels at the LBS to get the tension checked. also, i didn't have toe clips so i didn't want to do any serious riding yet
Anyway, while fondling it today, i noticed there is a very small ding on the top tube. it's hardly noticeable, but due to the reflections, you can tell it's there, and when you run your finger over it you can feel a very small indentation.
Normally I wouldn't care that much, but I'm still wondering where it got there. I haven't crashed or anything, and I don't remember dropping it. Maybe it was damaged during shipping from JensonUSA..
Anyway.. I have already removed the decals, so maybe I can't ask for an exchange. Also, I have found out the 53cm is kind of big and I would need a smaller size. (i'm almost 5'8", but my inseam is 29", and then when adjusted right I have like 2" of seat tube sticking out.. annoying). Am I basically ****ed and am going to have to sell this for $100 less b/c of a small ding?
That said, I have a 53cm surly steamroller complete basically brand new, does anyone have any smaller frames/bikes that they want to trade for this larger one?
