Wow a thread with a title only............................

Carbon bike?


Seriously people, I'm not the OP...... This thread is just out there with a title only, unless the OP deleted the post and a glitch left the title on the board.

I guess we can talk or speculate about what ever we want here. Or even claim my this is better than your that...... Oh wait, we do that anyway...... carry on!

OP is obviously using the wrong chain lube and his bearings have incorrect preload.

My diagnosis, with the usual BF basis of no information and less logic, is fractured carbon fiber in the interior of the chainstay. The LEFT chainstay.

it comes in a red can, does next to nothing for your chain, and the ads promise way too much.
