Bataleon problem

I just remembered to post/ask this.

I have two 08/09 goliaths. One rides like a dream and the other....Not so much. It seems like one of them just spins out from underneath me and results in a very painful fall. I don't have the problem with my other one.

Anyone else have this problem with a goliath?

It's because you forgot to wax the one you can control

No. That was the other one, and it's not for sale any more. I also haven't updated my sig in a while, I forgot all about this website.

I waxed both of them.

So I was obviously teasing in my previous statement...

My question is why do you have 2, and have you felt the board out? Are the flexes the same, no cracks, no blemishes, bla bla bla.... Cause no matter what we as consumers want to believe, "seconds" can and do make it into our hands from time to time.

No cracks or anything, flexes seem the same.

I have two because I got one for a steal from a friend who needed money.
