Dean Ace - anyone waiting for Ace or Baja

Just curious if there are other Dean Ace seat stays turning from black to purple.
View attachment 183633 <p> John @ Dean was surprised by this sight, and was quick to resolve this issue. I should have the bike back next week with beautiful Black Seat Stays. I can not say enough good things about the folks at Dean Cycles. Keep up the great customer support. :thumbsup:

John had no answer for the cause, since Dean only preps the stays for the Anodizer. The anodizing is performed by a different company.

7 weeks have past and still waiting for the seat stays to arrive from the Anodizer.

Just curious - Anyone waiting to receive their Ace or Baja from Dean?

The Ace is a 2005 - The rear triangle was replaced Nov 2005 - turned purple sometime before Feb 2006

Hooray for Black Seat Stays

Well, after 7 weeks and many phone calls; my Dean Ace is home again. Just look at those BLACK seat stays. I wonder when the stays will turn purple again....I'm guess after the first long ride (4hrs+) on a bright sunny day - UV 11 day :cool:
