Semcycle Longneck Frame Issues

    I've got problems with my frame. I have ever since I got it. Now I am
    really ticked off because of the fact that now the bearing cap bolt is
    stripped at the little notch that keeps it from spinning so I can't
    even take the frame off. I have no clue what the matter with the frame
    is. It is a few millimetres off center with the tire/wheel, and the
    seat is noticably cocked to one side. This affects my gliding and
    coasting, so it has become an issue. What should I tell UDC? What
    should I do immediately? I don't plan on at least -paying- for a new
    frame as I fear the same problem would arise. To rule out a few things
    - the wheel is completely true, my other frames work on this wheel and
    are perfectly straight, and yes it does bother me enough to need
    change.

    my sem frame doesnt line up with the bearings. you have to force it on.
    I took it off it to see what was wrong (whenever ever i would do
    certain clicks the whole thing would shift) and i alot of trouble
    getting it back on. My onza just fits right on perfectly. Does yours do
    that?

  10. If its not breaking anything or causing any noticeable disturbance while
    riding I would say just leave it...
