This is something new I've had to learn the hard expensive way about bikes and vibes. Risky buying a secondhand bike and annoying to find it can be risky buying a brand new bike.

It would be very nice if there was a vibe meter you could stick on the handlebar and then tell the dealer to break open another crate and you'd take the low vibe one and even better if that bad example ended up shipped back to the factory.

One guy I have had communication with has 13,000 miles on his bike and still waiting for it to smooth out.
