Share your most disappointing bike-related purchase

The crap stuff confessional

Have you ever made a bike-related purchase that’s left you bitterly disappointed? Now’s the time to let it all out…

For this week’s Over to You I want to hear all about the bikes or bits that have either let you down or simply left you cold.

Perhaps you’d bought said item off the back of a friend’s recommendation or glowing review only to find your own experience with said product was the exact opposite.

Whether it’s a frame that kept on cracking, a GPS computer that kept on crashing or a dropper seatpost that spent more time with the warranty department than on the trails, we want to hear from you.

Get involved through the comment box below.

With more than 10 years of experience riding mountain bikes, Oli knows the good from the bad when it comes to gear. He's a total bike nerd and loves few things more than fettling with spangly riding bits. Also, he seems to have a talent for crashing hard but emerging unscathed.
