    I was cleaning my XCL, in perpetration to put it away for the winter, and I found a crack on the drive side seatstay. Looks like this has happened one or two times...

    It's no ware near as bad as this guy's..

    Chumba XCL - cracked again


    Luckly it did not completely fail on the trail. What did Chumba do for the other guys??

    Why would you put your bike away for the winter? Snow biking rocks!

    Hopefully what happened to that guy you referenced won't happen to you, in reference to how he was accused of intentionally breaking the stay.

    I hope not,

    I am the ride coordinator for our local IMBA affiliated club, so I'm riding our technical trail system at least twice a week... I just ride the thing alot.

    As for the winter riding.. I use my hardtail with studded tires! It does rock!

    I am impressed! Chumba got back to me within 30 minutes of me emailing them...

    Also, Looks like I will have no issues with getting a replacement.

    Yeah, that guy got in trouble a couple weeks ago for some other comments he made because he's a Chumba sponsored rider.
