    New question here. felt virtue sport 2012 equilink bolt worn through frame!

    felt virtue sport 2012 equilink bolt worn through frame!-untitled4.jpgfelt virtue sport 2012 equilink bolt worn through frame!-untitled5.jpgfelt virtue sport 2012 equilink bolt worn through frame!-untitled6.jpgfelt virtue sport 2012 equilink bolt worn through frame!-untitled1.jpgfelt virtue sport 2012 equilink bolt worn through frame!-untitled2.jpgfelt virtue sport 2012 equilink bolt worn through frame!-untitled3.jpghi folks I've got a problem.. the equallink bolt has worn through the hole on the main frame. The bearings have not stopped it from eating away at the frame and now there is about 1mm-2mm play and it makes a clicking noise when i peddle! anyone had this problem before? can it be fixed? or is it gone? this has got to be the weakest design ever for a suspension system!

    I had just read about that problem as I saw a used bike on ebay but wasn't familiar with the bike. Early ones had full thread bolt and it was worse. I'd call FELT.
