Does the aluminum rize have the same pivot bearings issues as the carbon frames that have been stated in other posts.I would perfer to be out on the trail and not at home wrenching on my bike.

I must be lucky; I have 4000-5000 kms on my Rize Carbon and all I've had to replace is the lower shock bushing.
i have over 2000 miles on my rize and have had to replace tires all is tight...lol
Having recently completely stripped down my Rize Carbon (for cleaning and easy maintenance purposes) after around 2500 miles of hard-trail riding in mostly wet, muddy and rough conditions. I found only 1 bearing to be a bit rough due to some water ingress corrosion and could do with being replaced. The other 7 were still as smooth as silk.
