    5" Travel HT

    Ok, so a while ago some scrote robbed me of my Cotic BFe
    After what seemed like forever the insurance settled up and I thought I'd build a slightly lighter bike...
    And here it is:

    And very happy with it I was until after the second ride and subsequent wash I found this:

    So am now debating what to do, do I get another Piglet under warranty? Or ask for my hard earned back and look for something else?
    Looking for a 120mm travel frame (saves buying another fork) and my seatpost (KSi950) is 30.9mm....
    I'm that pissed off ATM I'm seriously thinking get my money, sell the fork and swap it all over to another BFe with a Fox36 or Lyrik...
    An input gratefully received as I just aint sure what to do!

    You loved your Beefy Ratty, get another one, go on.

    Or failing that, get an Inbred Swapout, crash proof frame on the cheap(ish), it'll work fine with 120mm forks. That is a rather poor show from the Piglet there, I don't think I'd take another if the first did that.

    TBH, I think I'm heading down the Beefy route.... Was bombproof and yes I did love it!

    I'll just have to slum it on my Transition Covert until this is resolved!

    Wow! That REALLY sucks. Why not move that sticker from the right to the left to cover it up? Kidding! Hope all goes well.
