I recently bought a Giant Cypress and have had a few complaints. Please bare with me as i try to describe the problem. Recently, while at an out of town repair shop, the guy pointed out that there is rubber surrounding the handle bar at the point where it is held on to the clasp that attatches it to the frame. In other words, under the clamp that holds the bar, there is rubber around the bar, almost like a gasket. He showed me his Cypress' that didn't have this rubber and pointed to grooves that should hold the bar in place. I'm wondering why i was sold a bike that doesn't seem to be "as is" from the manufacturer. If anyone understood what i described, can you tell me if you think i was hosed on the sale, and what recourse i have, if any. Thanks alot.
