    I fractured my ID...

    Broke out My 2003 (got it Spring 2004) Id to clean and tune it and found this pretty serious crack on the lower rocker/chainstay. Don't remember doing it - the last rides of the season were pretty mellow. Only have 2 solid seasons on it because I was down with a back injury in 2005. I am going to start the process tomorrow. Anyone know if these lower rocker arms are still available?

    There was a similar post awhile back where the rear stays on an Id were replaced with an epiphany one. Would be a good upgrage if it's possible, still making them too I guess.

    I wonder if the Moment stays would fit?

    I think you'll be okay. You'll probably get some new asym stays to replace that one.

    Thanks, I found that post and will be really pleased with one of the asymetric stays (preferably in silver).

    Never seen a chainstay break there.....That's odd.

    Id 2.5: Chainstay beautylicious

    Id 2.3 : Chainstay Upgrade....

    Kudos to Ellsworth...

    I find it very interesting that 100% of all the stays I have seen crack, including both of mine, did so in the exact same spot on the drive side. That to me implies it's due to compressive cycling when one applies force to the pedals. I can also see the new stays solving that problem because they are a "box" design.

    Excellent customer service!!!

    Brought in the Id on Monday to my Chain Reaction Cycles in Anchorage and had the silver replacement asymmetric chainstay already mounted on the bike by Thursday and I live in Alaska!!! One phone call to Ellsworth, one question (if I was the original owner?), and they sent it on its' way.

    It's pretty sweet and has some beautiful welds. As noted in other posts, there is more tire clearance which will be great. All in all, I am actually kind of glad that it crack!? I will post a photo later. Right now I am going for a ride
