Well my 19# rocket ship didn't last me too long. Broke during the Gunnison Half growler after only 250 miles of use and just as I was starting to get really comfortable on it. I'm not sure if it broke during a fall I had towards the end which there is some evidence of, or if it was already broken from riding it during the race as it is cracked along the designed SDS flex point. I did notice during the race that the rear was feeling much more compliant than usual and that sharp hits weren't as violent, kind of how I was expecting it to feel from new (I felt the ride was much harsher than my old alloy air 9).
Anyways I'm bummed and scott says it probably wont be till the end of the summer till I could get a replacement, maybe faster if they deem it a warranty claim and not a crash replacement. Kind of puts a damper on my racing.
