      This is the same Columbine that the seller sold to me in Dec. '11.  The
      frame was dropped upside down and the very pointed seat lug tip was bent badly.  After I had sent the bike back and got my credit card Paypal
      credit, the seller tried to "off" the problem on me and make up a bunch
      of lies and excuses for legally not getting it back and take
      responsibility.  He tried to threaten me at many points, be on the

      I received the bike today and found the damages to the tip of the seat lug. 
      I have (pics above) just received the Columbine with a damaged seat
      lug tip.  The deliverer did not have a protective tube perhaps and the thin
      pipe insulation was not enough protection for Fedex or whoever turn the box
      upside down and bend the tip enough when it hit the ground!

      In picture 003, you can see where the insulation was torn and wore through and in picture 004 you can see where the frames tip punched and ripped holes into the cardboard above it.
