And to think that was before the Great Corporate Takeover and Warranty Reduction of 2013. Somehow, I doubt REI will have improved in the last couple of years.
Yeah the only reason I suggested verifying was because I had it only from one person in one store. If he was correct, which seems likely, it is a slam dunk that their policy hasn't changed for the better.
While recognizing the above originators closure on this his/her's string, BUT because of
' prudent encouragement for recheck :- ) ...... I did so.... I rechecked on this with one of the 3 stores in metro-Atlanta. I simply asked (no mention made by me, of course of this forum or string within) if they were fully willing for the right amount of money to pack/ship from their REI to any other REI and the Bike Dept. Mgr. said an unreserved "Yes." I did NOT ask if they or other stores would reassemble.
Soooo, at least some stores, but maybe not all stores are back on board. Thanks
'staehpj1' for your emphasis on the recheck. Stuff keeps changing doesn't it :- ) ?
