But your choice is do you accept what the dealer had picked or not.Your problem isn't a language problem so it's your own problem then.
It makes your words:
"I said why did you buy something you didn't want".
... pointless - "you want" implies a choice of me, and there was no choice of me - the producer/dealer chosed.
The dealer didn't specify all properties of all parts of the bike.But your choice is do you accept what the dealer had picked or not.
I didn't know bikelights without an off switch existed.ok you chose to buy something , you didn't know what that something was but you bought it anyway , then complain that the something that you bought, wasnt what you wanted
The whole bike turnt out to be a mash together with a dozen problems (some dealer aware-but-unsaid to customer), with as most ridiculous one being a 5 mm offcenter chainline on a fixie.If you had specific requirements, you should have put those in writing to the dealer when ordering, and you should not have accepted delivery of the bike without checking if it was built to the required spec. If I buy a new car and tell the dealer I want it in blue, I am not going to accept being supplied with a yellow one.
He said they've found a solution for a chainline that is not 100% perfect straight, to me, this implies a solution that makes a 100% perfect straight (let's consider < 1% as perfect haha).Day <myname>,
just a final update regarding your bike.
This is completely ready at Santos and looks, it seems, great. Only the chain line is not one hundred percent straight. This is caused by the fact that the rear sprocket is too close inwards. This is not a problem in itself and we could deliver the bike. Only a slanted chain line results in faster wear and we want to avoid that as much as possible. We could adjust the chain line with a smaller rear sprocket and chainring in the front so that we can place the latter more inwards. As a result, fewer teeth so faster wear. Again a compromise that we do not want to make.
However, in consultation with Hajo van Santos, we have decided to make a final extra effort to really get the bike right. I started looking again and we have found a solution where the rear sprocket comes out a lot more and we can maintain the sprocket ratio.
Everything will be delivered to Santos within a day or ten. So please wait and apologize for the delay.
Never thought that the most 'simple' Santos would become such an educational challenge and quest. I look forward to it with you and I am convinced that we have made something beautiful out of it.
As requested, once I finish the bike, I make an overview of the parts and components used.
I also don't cut a breads bag and crust to check if a bread is really brown not white.and that's where you went wrong, expect nothing, check everything, then pert with your hard earned only when you are happy that you are buying what you WANT, and not something you DIDNT WANT
The bike was really the same - I paid 2500 ahead of production and the remainder upon presence in shop. I had to take the train and ride the bike home since the dealer said he couldn't deliver home due to no car, after having promised months earlier before order that he had a familiar who would do this job for him.sorry, silly me, I didn't realise the bike came in a bag and you couldn't see it . not really the same is it spending a pound on a loaf or hundreds on a bike, your not happy with what you got because you didn't check what you was buying , ….simple as that , anyway that's me done on the matter
