    got one for you

    I crashed in Moab, in the sand, not too bad but the bike definitely went in the sand. Then I got a rattle. Couldn't find it, tightened everything, still rattled.

    There is a pebble in the left seat stay- it got in through the holes for the cable routing. Any really dangerous ways to get it out- maybe acid down the hole to eat up the pebble, or super high pressure water?

    Kind of annoying.
    Go fast, take chances!

    ...Or, drip some glue in the hole, rock the pebble back into the glue and let set.

    The left hole is not for routing cables that I know of.

    I knew something like this would drive me nuts so as soon as i got my frame i plugged all the open holes (5 of them) in the rear triangle with rubber plugs from Pep boys.

    that's funny. i always get these in my wheels. Changing a flat on the side of the trail. some pebbles enter the rim and it sounds like moraccas in there.
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.
