    Replaced '07 mkiii rear tri on an '06 mkiii

    I thought I was immune to the broken mkiii plague but found out in July that the rear cracked in the same place much like others but I also had this in addition which was located on the left seat stay. Still a mystery since I never felt any drag when riding.



    I had to resort to riding my old hardtail cdale with 60mm front travel since then until today! Damn do I miss the squish! Thanks to KevinB for the great deal on the rear triangle. I had the LBS powdercoat and install it. Used all the links, hardware, and rockers from the '07. I took it for a little spin this afternoon with my sons and it feels just like before; great!



    The mkiii lives on....

    Thanks for posting!

    Edit: Did you end up needing any of the other hardware I sent along?
