    How few bikes does Rocky Mounatin have in stock at any given point that a single container can totally delay a warranty claim?

    They were gonna take the whole container but someone told them there was an e-bike in there and they didn't want to get charged with grand theft auto.

    I wonder where in the Vancouver area the warehouse is located.

    This place is the center of the universe when it comes to property crime.

    That really blows for the people waiting for warranty replacements or new orders.

    And though it's strange that they got jacked at a warehouse (maybe not so, if the place is addressed under Rocky's name), I don't find it strange or odd that they were stolen straight from a container. I've worked a few shitty jobs in my early twenties which involved unloading containers, most arrived from the yard with nothing more than a serialized soft metal seal on the door. And some of those containers were filled with carbon Fox V4 moto helmets...

    Where do you think they're gonna sell the frames? Outside Canada and the US?

    My last Evil warranty took over a year, so if RM takes 4 months like johnr says then it's still an upgrade.
