    That sucks

    I seen someone do that before w/ a chain too short.. I've never used a hamerschmit, is your chain long enough?

    Damn feel bad for you. Hope this is isolated issue. Not heard of this before.

    Sounds like you're suggesting a too-short chain could cause a frame failure?? I'm sure most of us have run a too-short chain at some point. That typically kills the chain, the derailleur, the hanger or all three. But snapping a chainstay?

    OP: Awesome carnage, dude. Hope you get sorted quickly.

    Break I saw happened right in front of me (almost like I saw it in slow motion). Was a boulder drop, slow plop @ same size as the OP, w/ short cage and frame didn't bottom.. can't really say the too short chain was the sole cause, but it sure couldn't help having cassette in the big
