Busted MTB frame. :-(
First time in a long time that I've busted a frame. The last time was back in the early days of bonded aluminium (a.k.a. the Crack'n'fail era; thankfully, days long gone.)
Last weekend I broke the upper shock bolt on my Stumpie Comp EVO. I thought everything was OK on the frame, and I was just going to replace the factory bolt with a 12.9 Stainless version, but when I examined it further it turns out the bolt hanger is bent from the impact when the bolt snapped.
I'm dropping it off at the shop this weekend for warranty assessment and hopefully replacement. Really hoping things happen quickly with it, because I'm registered for the Cascadia Dirt Cup enduro series which starts in 6 weeks, and I'd like to get in more training before then.
