    Did you break yours? If so, how? I can't help you out but I can't imagine how you would break one, I guess everything will break eventually.

    M-5 swing arm

    As long as you are the original owner it shouldn't be a problem. If your not you can always buy one.

    Almost the same place mine had cracked. Talk to pivot, they were very quick to respond and remedy the situation to my satisfaction. I am now a proud owner of a mach 429 thanks to the warranty.

    Is the crack the dark horizontal line? If so, seems like a wierd place for a crack. I am sure that Pivot will take care of you.

    Doesn't look like a weird spot to me. Imagine the stress when you land a little sideways or you are cornering hard - lots of leverage and it's all machined out there.

    I guess that I always figured that they machined in places that were subject to the least amount of stress.

    Another poster said that he cracked his there too, so what do I know?

    Besides these two, has anyone else heard of Mach 5 cracked frames?
