    Razzo Regrets

    I have about 100 miles on my Razzo and my crank arm fell off, i put it on again (carefully) and it came off, it's stripped the bolt and threads inside. i have to send it back to pricepoint for them to 'inspect' it and warranty it. i know this stuff happens but I suppose the regret is with inconvenience of not having my bike for a couple weeks (its prime spring riding weather too here in the SE USA) should have gone w/ local bike shop and paid more money, now i am concerned about stuff breaking while i am still in the time period that this bike would be warrantied and is considered newish...just some regret

    Did you make sure everything was assembled correctly when you got it ? I check everything , even on bikes from the LBS FWIW .

    I don't think I'd regret the bike based on that. One of my friends had the exact same thing happen to him with his $4000 Norco. The LBS thing is a legit issue but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. The only "LBS" where I live is a small sporting goods store that happens to be a Norco dealer as well. They generally stock 2 or 3 bikes and anything else has to be ordered in... at full msrp and it's yours whether you end up liking it or not. You pay before they will order. So I don't feel a sense of loyalty to them as a local shop but I also accept the inconveniences that come with internet or out-of-town shopping.

    i took to my LBS and they said threads in crank were ok, and just replaced the alum. bolt w/ a steel one. i am gonna take a gamble and just ride it, it feels tight and good to go.
    i guess if it lasts until summer when it gets unbearable hot then i am cool w/ it.

    Put Locktite 242 (the blue stuff) on the crank bolt threads to prevent them loosening and backing out .

    My BB bolts also backed out until I threadlocked them.

    Aside from your misfortune, what do you think of the bike?
