    Dean Ace - anyone waiting for Ace or Baja

    Just curious if there are other Dean Ace seat stays turning from black to purple.
    Attachment 183633<p> John @ Dean was surprised by this sight, and was quick to resolve this issue. I should have the bike back next week with beautiful Black Seat Stays. I can not say enough good things about the folks at Dean Cycles. Keep up the great customer support.

    John had no answer for the cause, since Dean only preps the stays for the Anodizer. The anodizing is performed by a different company.

    ...Doe Dee Doe....

    7 weeks have past and still waiting for the seat stays to arrive from the Anodizer.

    Just curious - Anyone waiting to receive their Ace or Baja from Dean?

    That stinks dude. How old is your ride? I know I couldn't be w/o my Ace for that long.
    Why would I need more than one gear?

    Hooray for Black Seat Stays

    Well, after 7 weeks and many phone calls; my Dean Ace is home again. Just look at those BLACK seat stays. I wonder when the stays will turn purple again....I'm guess after the first long ride (4hrs+) on a bright sunny day - UV 11 day
