    Yakuza Kumicho Frame

    Is anyone aware of frame issues with the Yakuza Kumicho? I have the opportunity to purchase one, but I'm worried about potential frame cracking issues.

    Also could someone post a picture of the a MKIII triangle and circle the common crack locations? I have a 2006 MKIII and want to make certain there are no frame cracks.

    I'm not aware of any frame issues and I researched it before I bought my Kumicho. I have a 2008 that I used at Whiteface several days a week last season and then at Diablo to close out the year without any frame issues. Downhillmike (the manager of Whiteface MTB Park) commented that I probably had more riding time at Whiteface last year than anyone else so the bike saw a lot of use. I'm looking forward to another year on the same frame.
