    Hi All,

    I purchased a 2008 model Apollo Ascent which is meant to have hydraulic disc brakes and a lockout lever on handle bar and a better gear system. (According to the 2008 website which is my model)

    However, I recieved some Promax Disc Brakes (ABSOLUTE RUBBISH - Were alright in beginning - 2 months later = rubbish and hard to pull), and no lockout lever on forks. It has been completely taken off (RST GILA RL) .shimano gear system is similar.

    Should I go back to the store and ask for the disc brakes to be fixed and a lockout lever on handle bar for free?

    This is nonsence because the brakes a very bad (hard to pull and nothing like my friends hydraulics).

    Would it be okay because it has been 2 years since I got the bike.

    Thanks.

    You've had the bike for 2 years and you only now want to voice displeasure about the equipment on your bike? You can't be serious - right?

    Try putting yourself in the place of the retailer for a moment in this situation with a customer coming in 2 years later to complain about a purchase.

    Consider also you probably got the bike at a reduced price (compared to the OEM model) because of the lesser equipement...

    Suggest you sell the bike if you truly dislike it that much and get something you really want...
