I'm thinking of buying a 2012 Cove Hustler off CRC.
I'm a little worried about rear swingarm flex. The main pivot (near the BB) looks tiny, and the part where the chainstay clamps onto the main axle via pinchbolts looks a bit... underbuilt compared to other similar designs?
Compare the Cove's pivot with a Kona Dawg which uses a relatively big bushing
I was thinking of the Ventana El Ciclon, then they went and redesigned it with the swoopy tubes which was a total turn-off to me (i like my bikes simple!)
What I liked about it was that it used 4 bearings in the main pivot instead of the usual 2, and was happy to discover that the Cove has a similar setup (4 bearings) I'm just not very confident of the main pivot design...
Any Cove Hustler owners here care to chime in?? Thx!
