Recommended Posts

My mate bought the new Tensiles (legends) from tarty three weeks ago. Today while hopping onto a rock and not even kicking that hard the threads the that hold the ring on crumbled and when he was cycling he was going now where. Do you think tarty will replace them? He's well pissed off : . has this happened to any one else? could it just be a defect in the new cranks because my tensiles (the old ones are fine).

please help him out Gavyn :arabia:

Well, 'special connections' in that they're owned by supercycles :) Either way, that is pretty crazy... Haven't heard of that ever happening before :S Was the cog screwed on properly? Not cross-threaded at all?

Either way, give Tarty a call first, and see what they say about it. It'll end up being refered to Supercycles ultimately, but you bought them through Tarty, so as far as I know they deal with the warrantying...

he had the same problem with a set of echo cranks the week before he bought his tensiles

Didn't tell us that? Then he's probably nailed his warrenty. But its worth a try, supercycles are sound, they will probably offer a half price set?

what a load of shit (N) he never cross threaded them imagine how much pressure that would take :o

if he had cross threaded them they would'nt have lasted till now his bash is the tensile uci one which doesnt stick out onto the threads the echo ring he was using was the same one on his striped echo cranks :S:S:angry::P:-
