#!markdown My two cents: nope. Failures caused by assembly are not bike failures, they're sloppy work by whoever put the bike together. Manufacturers have no control over these things, and these days parts are so good that failures are bad luck more than anything. As a reader, I want to know how the bike performs at it's best. I want a bike review, not an assembly review. Now, if only reviewers could find a way to make comparisons to other bikes some of us have ridden to give more context to "lively, climbs like a goat," and all the other hackneyed phrases… Bike reviewers work hard to figure out the nuances of a bike, that knowledge should be shared and not buried in manufacturer-friendly marketing copy (hint eds).
