Interesting. I wasn't thinking you impacted the frame at that spot ... but maybe a terrible pedal strike .. or something, i don't know. just wanted to be sure it was caused by normal use. You understood.mtnbiketodd said:On average I ride National (longer rides in the winter & shorter in the summer) at South Mtn 3 days a week year round. Lately me riding rate is ~195lbs...
No it was not caused by a crash or driving over the frame with a car. I have no idea how you would impact the frame in that area?
This is the first post I've seen of this type of failure on the newer frame as well.
