Big Block Fork Lugs

So the right lug of my new Big Block fork isn't completely brazed all the way around. There are two spots where the fork arm does not attach to the lug. I haven't built it up yet, this is how it came. Is it safe to ride it this way?

I'd return it and get a good one.

Return it for a good one like seau grateau said. The fork looks like it could just fail any time... I wouldn't risk riding on that.

Thanks for the answers guys. I'll definitely try to get an exchange. If there is a manufacturer defect and I want an exchange, is shipping normally on me or on the dealer?

I'd be pissed if they tried to make me pay return shipping. Everybody is trying to **** everybody else, don't take any **** from some dealer. Prepaid UPS label FTW!

I don't think it's dangerous. I think you'll never notice. However, it is bad news, it could very well be held together with paint.

Did you pay retail? Not from a discounter of some sort? I think they should pay the shipping. It's worse than a hidden defect - they should have inspected it before it shipped.

That's basically a cosmetic problem, but it still shouldn't have made it past QC. I would have sent it back when I was inspecting for Trek.
