    Are you missing a bolt where swingarm connects to upper link (looks like it in photo)? If so I wonder if it bottomed on seattube or caused uneven stress?

    Andrew,

    I looked at your photos on Photobucket and in particular the one full sized picture of your bike. When I enlarged the photo, it looks like the bolt that Larsey referenced is indeed visible in that photo, whereas in the photo above, I do not see that bolt or did you remove it after the break?

    Sounds like the bolt came out at some point before that drop, and the uneven force caused the brace to crack. Email me and I'll get this sorted out: sam@intensecycles.com

    The bolt came out so the right seat stay left unsuported. Check your bearings, bad bearings tend to unscrew the bolts, it hapened ti my new tracer carbon.

    How quickly did your bearings go bad? This bike just came out...seems strange the bearings would go bad so quickly...
