So, I have a '99 Rockhopper A1 FS Comp in the oh so purty grabber green that I have ridden HARD over the years. I love this bike - It just fits me like a glove. I've slowly upgraded just about every component on there so that it is now just about the perfect hardtail for me, EXCEPT ...
It has had a clicking or creaking sound when pedaling under load for awhile now. (I'm talking 3+ years) And, it's slowly been getting worse. I've replaced just about everything in the drivetrain/BB since it first started happening. I now have an external BB. I've had 2 shops just about completely disassemble it trying to diagnose the problem and found nothing. You can also get it to make the noise when bouncing on the cranks when they are parallel to the ground.
It HAS to be a small crack in the aluminum somewhere. My LBS said Spec wouldn't warranty it unless they can SEE the crack, and nobody can find it. I thought Spec had the best warranty in the business. What does a new Rockhopper frame cost them the manufacture? $150 tops? Why won't they hook up a long time customer?
Anybody have any ideas how I can get this bike warrantied? Thanks
