This week we booked in this Felt BMX which looks like a perfectly reasonable bike… from a distance. But one you look closely all the tell-tale signs are there.
For starters the crankset wasn’t fitted correctly and the chainring was rattling around. Just what you need if you want your chain to fall off all the time!
Hand painted components are always a dead giveaway of a bodged up bike, and this bike was no exception. Complete with hand painted front brake caliper and hand painted cranks.
But of course the cranks themselves are not even the correct ones for the bike, the bottom bracket spindle and the cranks are
two completely different systems.
Luckily this customer brought the bike to us for us to put right.
