I did not want to badmouth his shop, but if someone ****s with something like that, they should at least have the courtesy to mark the owner’s positions and return it with the owner’s fit.
Agreed, but has happened to me multiple times with different shops and Velofix. Part of the reason I’m trying to learn how to work on them myself.
