Praising Dean (the bike, not the imploding candidate
Gotta drop a note to praise the support from Dean Bikes.
I just got my Colonel frame back, after a local shop had told me the head tube was ovalized. Turned out to be true, but only barely, and Dean and I agreed that installation of one of those bomb-proof long necked downhill headsets would be an acceptable fix. They installed one from FSA, charging only for the part, and completely reburnished the frame and applied new decals. The frame looks brand new.
I Paid a reasonable price for the headset and shipping, and nothing for the rest of the frame work or the extra derailleur hanger they threw in. Gotta love it.
