I jumped the gun. My apologies!

A quick statement.

I jumped the gun the other day when i said that the parts I received from Mark at CarbonPartz.com were dented and dimpled. That wasn't the whole story and I was a dick because of the following: The problem is that I posted that particular complaint prior to receiving a response from Mark after emailing him about the problems with the part. I simply posted and bashed the guy on this forum before having a chance for the guy to respond to my email regarding the issue. Anyways, I feel obligated to post that the owner of Carbonpartz.com offered to pay for the return of the flawed item and for him to resend a Brand New Carbon Front Fender. Also, Mark from Carbon Partz.com has been more than helpful and has offered tons of suggestions and ideas regarding the upgrading of my bike. My apologies for bashing the guy without reason. I was frustrated at the time and jumped the gun and made statements that I regret. -Chef Luis Pernia

Hey that's very awesome of you to step up and say that. I'm sure he never ment to give you a defective part to begin with. But stepping up and saying sorry well that proves that there is people with integrity out there still

Thats good that is fixing this, but the fact still remains that he sent a crap product. I do powder coating and hobby fiberglass/carbon fiber and it is not a process that is so simple that even small defects would go unnoticed. There is alot of hands on time with the part before and after it comes out of the mold, maybe it was an honest mistake or he was rushing to get the part out to you... i dont know.

He is just doing his best to please you since he is banned over here and can't berate you on a forum while attempting to defend himself. You should have posted it on speedzilla and watched the hilarity ensue. Guaranteed you would be called a troll and a newb at least once by Mark.

In my opinion the guy and his parts are a joke. He is hit or miss, and you never know what you are going to get. Some people have zero problems with his work, and some have nothing but problems. Some get great customer service, and some get insane emails and threats of lawsuits. Another problem is that you never know what is considered "good work" to different people. Some people might just see something glossy made of carbon fiber and think it is awesome and whoever made it is a miracle worker, but others will notice pin holes, milky resin, cracks, horrible fitting etc etc and think the maker is a hack. You just never know when it comes to the standards of other random people on the Internet.

The same thing happens with those Chinese fairings. A trained eye, or someone detail oriented like myself will look at them and think they are all complete shit. Someone who has never seen a polished turd will think the are the shit.

That is just my opinion. It sounds like he is trying to do you right, so I guess that is good thing.

I'm always right.

No matter what kind of person Mark may be, you did right with this thread Chef Luis. Many words of truth and reason in what you said.
I know Mark; I bought an exhaust system from him. I had a workmanship issue that took a while to get straightened out, but Mark was always respectful and answered all my texts and emails. And the issue was corrected very well. I've seen some provoking behavior from him on this forum, and zilla too, but that wasn't ever directed towards me. I hope he can get more focus on his products, and less on the forum bashing.
