Hi everybody. I just snagged a frame from a buddy of mine while he upgraded to a SWEET ellsworth truth. My new frame is a steel DEAN jester softail, with a stratos XC pro shock in the back and about 1.8 inches of travel. the frame rocks, is very light, fits me great, and in general is a whole lot of fun.
Now, my worry is that this is a 6 year old steel softail, and those chainstays have been flexing a whole bunch. should I be concerned about these guys snapping off on me or anything?
I don't take it off 4 foot drops, just general XC riding.
anyone have experience with these before?
