My baby is a Slayer SXC 30. I have had her for four years, four months and nine days. I love, love, love this bike. While giving her a bath yesterday I discovered what looks like a small crack on the weld where the down tube meets the bottom bracket on the port/non-drive side. I'm going to take it to a Rocky dealer tomorrow, but I wanted to hear opinions from others. The crack does not resemble any paint cracking that I have seen but what do you think? Has anyone else had problems with cracks in this area before?
I know aluminum has a limited life-span so I knew that at some point something was going to happen but I was hoping to get a few more years out of her. I'm definitely not hucking or pushing the envelope but I do ride a lot of miles. I would definitely buy another Slayer in a heartbeat, it has been a tremendous bike, if you have the legs for it, it will climb up and over anything and it goes downhill like a bat out of hell.
The purple ruler in the top of the photo is showing millimeters to give some scale to it.
Anyway, just wanted some opinions from other Rocky owners, you guys always have the best advice and I really appreciate the time and effort everyone puts in answering questions.
Thanks, ride safe and have fun.
