If you crash your new Ford car, would Ford give you 40% off a new car?
Sounds like they are trying to help a fellow rider out.
It's hard to see that as a great deal when the board was 30% off because of a thin metal manufacturing defect, something I truly believe caused this to happen. Everybody riding with me could NOT believe that happened. After further research, poor quality and easily worn/damaged nose and tails are common with Gnu/lib tech boards.
