    Happy HollowPoint Owner

    03 hollow point owner and very happy. I've had mine since october 03 and cracked the frame after 3 monthes of riding.( in the normal spot just under bracket on seat tube) i called tod and he said to take it to a lbs since no ih shops in area and have them send it for warrenty. had the bike back within 3 weeks and have had very little problem since. I did brake the main dw pivot bolt between the 2 brass bushings and had a new one within a week great servise from tod and bruce and just want to say ih bikes are the best. also want to ad that the expert frame was replaced with the team frame. this buy far is the best bike with all the great components and I do all my own wrenching and have had very little problems with keeping the bike dialed in at all times.I have kept a close eye on the frame and have had no more problems since febuary. I ride very technical singal track and ridges with some steep drops and alot of roots and have seen no more cracks.I ride twice a week and ride about 15 to 25 miles each time. I now fill that i dont have to check it after every ride anymore and am very sure i wont have no more problems

    Did you get an 03 frame as a replacement, or an 04?

    Wish that IH would have sent me an 04 with the new style swingarm but they sent me an 03.5 team frame instead. That was cool though becouse the 03 expert fram was of the gray silver color and the 03.5 team frame they sent for replacement was the same color only it had a touch of yellow added to the top and down tude trangular design in the paint. I am very happy with it but need to get out and ride tomorrow if the rain stops here in sunny florida rainy season and all and also charlie just came in south of me about 50 miles so hopefully the trails wont be to torn up . RIDE ON
