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?

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