the chainstay protector was on the frame when i bought it. reminds me, i should get some protective clear tape and put it over it.

if u want, i may consider swapping you posts? :wink:

it's the lightest bike i own at just under 24lbs, just nudging below the Cirrus by about half a pound.

....so that's where my pedals ended up then! I am sooooooo jealous. Love the AMP bikes - got a set of forks off here recently but was stiffed on them. :cry: Ho-hum, lesson learned for the future.

Forks were sold to me as having, and I quote "the forks are fully functional, with the pivots tight and working." This is not the case as the fork pivots are in fact loose and the seller will not give me a refund!!

you should post up your dispute on the forum if you haven't already. either in the general forum or the feedback forum.

i have a spare threadless Amp fork. but i think i already mentioned it to you and the steerer was too short for your needs. not sure if you can swap out the steerer.
