    Chainstays on 2010 GF 29er's

    I have a 2010 Paragon. The chainstays are open on the ends. Do all 2010 GF 29er's have open ended chainstays?

    This seems to contribute to rotor noise and vibration. I always thought that all GF 29er frames were the same. The vibrations really annoy me and if this is because of the open ended chainstay, that really bums me out.

    You could always put a squirt of a soft rubber caulking compound into them, and it would act like a vibration damper, similar to the "Zertz" inserts Specialized uses in some of their bikes, and compound bows use in their risers to dampen vibration.
