I just looked at a picture of another 12 Stella from the giveaway. The rear wheel is exactly the same. I didn't make it to the dealer but I'm guessing it's normal on the 4T Stellas. Let's see those photos of the sides of your real wheel with the air valve http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y23/dwnthe...

2012 Stella rear wheel spacing

I recently picked up a '12 Stella 4T. Is it normal for the real wheel to be so canted? I compared it to my brother's 2T which is not perfectly centered but much better than the 4T. I'm aware that there are frame differences but want to make sure it's safe to ride. The dealer says it's normal. Thanks...

Both had under 10 miles on them. We switched back and forth several times and the Agility won every time....

Thank you for the email.

The warranty and roadside service are not transferable, unfortunately.

I'm considering a purchase of a Buddy 125 with 200 miles on it. Does anyone know if the warranty and roadside assistance is transferrable?
