Only based on one experience, but my Assos bib shorts arrived with a security tag attached. Clearly stock just picked from the shop floor but with limited checking. I emailed and the answer was to go and find a shop that could take the tag off, making sure I brought proof of purchase. Not sure what else they could do apart from sending me a returns label. However, the point of buying on-line is that you don't have to visit a shop..... bibshort still in its box as I don't know where to take it, haven't got the time and suspect there are numerous different types of tags so its all going to be a bit of a nightmare... all a bit of a nuisance which I could do without when spending 100 quid on a pair of cycling shorts. Will use more established and dedicated on-line shops such as wiggle in future who know how the business and operation model works.
