    2003 rocky mountain fanatik question swingarm

    hey guys, i just bought a 2003 rocky mountain fanatik on ebay not too long ago after two pretty fast trail rides the swingarm cracked , wasnt really the bikes fault as the de-raillour got banged up and bent around and twisted the swingarm where it mounts with the deraillour as i was pedalling, question is i cant find any replacement swingarms, or frames on ebay, it seems to small of a section to spotweld, and i dont feel like buying another bikes, the bike feels really nice on the trails for me and turns and climbs very well for a budget minded fs. i will be calling rocky mountain tomorow too find out what they can do and my last result would be bringing it to a bike shop has anyone ran into this problem before (swingarm replacement that is) i think the rocky mountain warranty is 5 years on frame but idk if the swingarm constitutes as the frame and i am also the second owner so idk if the warranty gets voided, any help is greatlly appreciated im just getting into the sport more serious so i dont have alot of exp fixing these things lol thanks!

    RMB will sell you a new

    swing arm. Warranty doesn't apply, as the damage isn't due to their manufacturing, but due to a crash/trail damage. No bike mfr. covers that under warranty, except Santa Cruz and a few others under crash replacement policy. But you still pay for the part(s).

    Warranties also do not apply to anyone other than the original owner. But in this case your description is not a warranty situation anyway. You don't need to buy another bike, just a new swingarm from Rocky Mountain.
