Re: have you ever tried to get a life time warranty part warrantied after

I use some Craftsman Tools from the Late 1950's , that were my Grandfather's . Craftsman Tools have a really decent repair / exchange warranty for insuring the lifetime of their tools . I bent a 3/8 Open-Ended Wrench not so long ago . I hardly think I have the right to go and try to have it replaced for free , especially since I wasn't the original owner .

The S&M you bought is really nice , you posted on the S&M Hoarders Thread . But bragging you were going to try and " con " S&M into giving you a new stem or something of equal value , was pretty dumb . Especially since there are not only S&M Dealers on this website , but an S&M Rider that runs his own online BMX Store . I suggest just either replacing the broken part yourself or just use another because carrying on here won't win many people over to you .

You get worked up over a used bike that you have owned for less than two days.  Warranty applies to the original owners lifetime not yours.  Lifetime warranty is not meant to transfer with ownership.  Your reaction to the comments and your posts linked below do make you seem like a "cheapskate".

Re: have you ever tried to get a life time warranty part warrantied after

I just spoke from my experience.  I dealt with that for a living so I have spent more time with that issue than most people here. 

I took offense to your comment that I'm more of a company man than a rider.  Yeah, I work in the industry but that doesn't mean I don't ride.

Have you been sponsored by one company or another for 30 years?

Have you been competing since 1985?

Have you designed frames that are considered one of the all time best?

Have you done over a thousand shows including NBA and NFL half time shows?

Have you signed thousands of autographs?

Have you entered pro ramps?

Were you in the Freestylin' book?

Did Dave Mirra credit you as an influence?

Have you been in over a dozen BMX videos?

Have you aired out of the Mega Ramp?

Do you ride flat, street, dirt, vert and race?

Did you go on tour?

I've done all those and more.  This is the first time I have ever spoken of myself on this or any forum.  I'm not bragging, just stating the facts.  When you have done all those things maybe your perspective will be a little different when it comes to BMX.

ok ther bud. so because i disagreed that if you have something for 15 years. and it breaks. you got your moneys worth on a lifetime warrantied item. now aside from my rather poor choice of words earlier you are going to tell me if YOU buy a stem from s&m and have if 15 years and it breaks! and they said you got your moneys worth??

Actually, I can't imagine having any bike part for 15 years and having it last that long.  Now, from reading the other posts, it seems you aren't the original owner so it's a moot point at best.  Even if you are the original owner, what exactly is the wording of the warranty when the item was purchased?  I just looked at their website and it's no longer a lifetime warranty.

And when I was the warranty guy I did cover the part in these incidents.  Problem was new stuff wasn't compatible.  I'd offer a discount on a replacement complete bike for a broken frame or sometimes even fork.

Re: have you ever tried to get a life time warranty part warrantied after

and jesus christ you can be an influence in bob haros point of view 30 years ago and still turn out to be a company man thru and thru. come on dude! your point of very is 15 years is a full lifetime warranty and mine is as long as your alive and own the part it should be replaced. lets just agree to disagree and move on!

Re: have you ever tried to get a life time warranty part warrantied after

Before I was in the bike industry I worked for an insurance company and dealt with a lot of stolen bikes.  The insurance industry figures the lifespan of a bicycle is 10 years so that is how they would figure out a price for an older bike.  They'd take 10% off a year until it got to 50%.  That bothered me as I had some old school bikes back then that would be deemed "worthless".  I also thought about it and realized, yeah, ten years is a reasonable lifetime for a bicycle.  Some will last longer but most won't. 

Are you the original owner of the part that failed and do you have the receipt?  Yes or no?

No, that was an allegory that got me thinking about the lifespan of a bicycle.  I thought maybe you would consider it.

Again, are you the original purchaser and do you have the receipt of the item that failed?

I wasn't arguing, just explaining the company's side as one who worked in the warranty department. 

Then he started insulting my character.

Re: have you ever tried to get a life time warranty part warrantied after

yes i did. it was by accident i worded it wrong and im sorry. what i meant to say was you are arguing the company point not the rider. but what made this a disagreement was your statement the 15 years on a lifetime warranty was a persons money worth and they are cheapskates. but you was trying to call me a cheapskate and im not gonna take that!
