Geez, Your JRA must be at warp speed compared to me to break 2 frames in a few days. ...I can't hardly seem to break a sweat when I am JRA'ing.srwings said:

Darn. I have the picture linked from my pbase account. I sometime get that 'X' too. If you are using MS Internet Explorer as your browser try hitting F5 to refresh or right clicking and selecting 'Show Picture'. Sorry.tvrbob86 said:I don't even get that.

Thanks. I dropped off the bike(s) yesterday evening. The GF rep should be in today. I believe GF is adding reinforcement to the horizontal frame tube that joins the seat tube. It looks aesthically well done. The dealer had several Procalibers on hand. Some frames had the reinforcement and some didn't. The Paragons were all sold out.holycromoly said:Seems like these broken seat tube surface every so often here that perhaps fisher should reconsider their design. A diagonal gusset would help it seems, but i am no engineer, just a common sense observation.
Bummer. I hope your LBS and fisher take care of you.
Maybe you should go on a diet?R.

I've had this one for about 3 months, we'll see how long it lasts.
It's about time. Fisher treated that seat tube extension like it was a beta website: just get it out there and we'll fix if it breaks.Guitar Ted said:Here's a close up of the seat tube/top tube junction on the new '08 Paragon...Hydroformed top/down tubes and chainstays
