    ngised yats rewop denut-liart - Mirrored Print on the 600HT

    I ordered the 600HT last week and got it a few days ago. So far the bike is really solid and nice... but there's one thing that bothers the hell out of me. On the left seat stay there is some printing that's supposed to say "Trail-Tuned POWER STAY design". Well, it does say it, but it's a complete mirrored print.

    Honestly, it's a bit tacky and embarrassing. If this is on all the frames it really should be made clear on the order page.

    Sorry for the crappy picture, I had to use my phone, my camera died.



    So am the only one... or is this printing error on all of the frames?

    lol... I guess it'll be easily identifiable if it gets stolen.

    I guess you could just laugh it off but that sort of blows. They need to fix that. That just screams no QC.

    ...yeah.

    It was especially embarrassing when my friends saw the bike for the first time today. I hyped it up and told them a BD bike was just as good as others, etc... It didn't take 2 minutes for one of them to point out the printing error and start laughing.

    That really sucks. It makes it look like a Mart bike. Is the decal under a clear coat, or can you take it off?

    Oh wow, you got an "Error 600HT!" Sell it on eBay for mucho dinero! J/K. If it really embarrasses you, you could always cover it up with electrical tape or some other sticker. Or write a letter of complaint to BD.
