One corner was royally bashed in so I'll have to check to see that the tree is ok. Other than that the saddle is fine.
I get a lot of parts via UPS/Fedex for work. I can't even begin to list how many times I've recieved badly mangled boxes. Luckily parts are usually packed well enough that they are rarely damaged.
