It may have been just the paint cracking, but Niner was awesome (of course) and warrantied it. I hope the new carbon compaction process means that doesn't happen again. Happy you like the protection plate
when I requested the white, I somehow overlooked that it said matte...I'd rather it have been glossy. I didn't want another black bike and wanted to make sure I got the new carbon, so I went white. It looks nice in person...right now. We'll see when it's 3 tone later (white, green, and brown). I do miss the blue, but they where showing up on the trail a lot around here
Yes. First I had a Fox 34, then Pike 150, and now the MRP Stage 150. The fox was ok, but brake dove. It is my backup fork now. The Pike developed a creak in the upper crown/stanchions. I got it warrantied; SRAM replaced the uppers (steerer, crown, stanchions). They took so long I bought the MRP... The MRP makes more noise (no creaks), but is plusher than the Pike and seems more composed bombing through the rock gardens. I also like that MRP is here in Colorado and you can actually talk to them (unlike SRAM). I need to sell the Pike (will be posting an ad soon).
