    Kaffenback Chainstay Warning

    Just a friendly heads up. So leave the negative stuff aside.

    If you own a Planet X kaffenback frame please check your chainstays. I discovered a small problem while stripping the parts for a rebuild.





    Sucks as was going o take it to Florida so it the MTB instead. But the bonus is winter Monstercross build.
    If you hurt in your efforts and suffer painful dings. Then you are doing it right.

    Did it have a wet noodle feel when riding, or did you only notice it by visual inspection?

    To be honest hadn't ridden it at all since September. Had been training for a 100k event and other then a couple of 10 minute rides to work no other riding on it. Only noticed to me what seemed to be normal flex. But I would have probably noticed the wet noodle feel if I had used it way more.

    Really only caught it because was stripping it down to build a Monstercross/Gravel type rig.
