    I come in peace

    Well what you've have done is a banning offence, before you start on others. Glass houses and all that...

    And no it's wasn't obvious.

    Regards the above mentioning the unanswered email, i might have missed an email or two, but not on purpose, so if anyone needs to contact me with an issue just let me know.

    The personal insults re my mother are out of order. I have no need to defend Alan, i have nothing invested in Chumba, have always ordered when i have orders to fulfil.

    I ight start another thread to clear a few things up when i get a minute.
    You come across as being very dishonest. In the Brodie thread, you post as Airdrawn and claim "a friend of a friend sells these things" (sic) - when it is you who sells them.

    If you look at Airdrawns post history, 95% of his posts are defending Chumba.

    This is not cool.

    The brodie post, was actually just before i started dealing direct with the Ti Holeshots, buts thats a different story.
    So on the Brodie thread you posted from airdrawn first then on the same day you posted as Si and became the distributor....

    You got busted and trying to back out of it will just make it worse. Don't insult my intelligence.

    Its certainly not unusual or unheard of for a new bike design to have bugs, and its good to hear that Chumba is looking at it and working on a revised linkage, problem is they're telling customers that their problem is a set up issue and not handling problems on their end, or just not responding at all.

    Problems happen, how you handle them is what separates good bike companies from former bike companies and Chumba is doing everything wrong.

    hahahahahahahahahaha. what a flake. man, you are awesome si. that posing as a customer with multiple accounts. i remember when brant accused you of scummy things on a uk forum. guess he was right.

    no matter how you try to spin it you were using a sockpuppet account to drum up business and defend your own business interests and now you post a whiny thread that you don't like personal attacks.

    here's an idea, don't be a scumbag then.

    Don't think you will see many about as numbers are limited, the UK guys only have a handful of frames

    I have not been here for a while as it was getting to much for me and was actually making me stressed, so thought it best to stay away.

    In that time i have still sold Chumba frames in the UK, nothing major, its mainly a side job that i do and doesn't really make much money from year to year. Frame sales of the HX1 and HX2 have been good just recently and have also had a few EVO G2 frames.

    The EVO G2 does seem to have a few issues, the link hitting the ST before the shock bottoms out, the factory tell me they are looking at how this has happened and looking at a new link or a revision to existing links. So i wait to see what happens.

    I have no need to sell Chumba or defend Alan. I have admitted that mistakes have been made at Chumba USA and they have also affected myself and that things should have been handled differently with some of the issues.

    The personal attacks re Alan are a disgrace, no person should be subjected to the abuse, photoshopped images name calling etc and now it seems my name is also being mentioned, which i wont stand for.

    In my time dealing with Chumba (3 years) i have never had a frame returned, other than damaged in transit, and the only unhappy customers i remember are a couple who i could not supply frame decals to, so in that respect what i read on here is certainly not my experience, though i understand that others feel different, so perhaps you can see why i tried to defend Chumba and add reason to the mad house?

    I am sorry that the Chumba name has been dragged down, its a real shame.

    I wont hang around and listen to people slag me off, i try my best and thats all i can do.

    So, i leave you all in good faith and hope you can chill out and relax.

    looks like you try your best to drum up business and protect your brands you sell with your sockpuppet account

    Personal attacks aren't the answer.
    But chumba do need to come on here and answer some of these answers.
    Si you not having any issues is hard to believe I basically tried to do the same as you but all I got was screwed around.

    what does it make you then? you are falsely representimg yourself and the products you sell. what would you call that in england then if not a "scumbag"? you posted a thread about the holeshot as a"mate of a mate" leaving out completely that you were actually the distributor for brodie ion that thread and then later posted as "yourself" that the bikes owuld be in stock soon.

    in what way can you defend such behaviour? it was an accident?!?

    seriously dude, you've shown your true stripes now. duck and run or do whatever you need to do, but there's no doubt you are a lying sack of excrement.

    what do you call this?

    Just asked and they will ship to the states if you were interested.
    you know a guy who distributes them?

    Si is alright. Ya, he stepped in it and got caught but at least he has owned up to it. I expect for people to defend their business interests. I think he has handled the Chumba ***** show pretty well until now. It takes more than that for me to consider someone a scumbag.

    X 2. But unfortunately this is another nail in the Chumba coffin, and qbert & co will think xmas has come early.

    it's a "consumer" review forum honey, what part is hard to get. the guys a liar and has defended chumba with his real account and then as a consumer sockpuppet account too. he should be banned for that, they've done it to others. i have no problem being an a-hole under my real account. why hide?

    why not just let his products and companies he reps speak for themselves? he did seem like an okay guy. you knew he was a rep and could take what he was saying with a grain of salt. posting as a consumer and starting threads for his products under a false account and then even posting in those threads as the distributor is pathetic and should result in both his accounts being closed. what integrity does the guy have? he waved the flag for chumba no matter what. good on him for standing up for chumba when even alan and oscar left him waving in the wind but there's no defence for the sockpuppet $h!t. it's crooked and dishonest and designed to line his pockets based on lies.

    Strange. After being made aware of your second account, it seems you have been doing just that since 2009

    How can you expect to be taken seriously if you feel the need to hide behind a second account? You'd get more respect by growing a set and being up front, rather than BS'ing your way around.

    If Chumba were up front from the start and actually made some sort of attempt to answer questions when asked (these were on items I wanted to purchase), then I would still be riding the F5

    But at they the ORIGINAL poster, or just replying to enquiries?
    I think that's the difference from this thread, or some of the ones I've seen from you on STW.

    back when he was comparing his touting of products on the forums to yours. but you've never gone as far as starting another account and starting discussion of your products under it to drum up business for yourself, at least as far as i know.

    Really, that's being "good to you". Badgering them with a "slew" of emails - that's what you as a consumer expect and you consider their ultimate reply "good?"
