    2013 Covert shock fouling the frame

    Just wondering if anyone else has had an issue with there shock fouling there seat stay joint weld. My frame came to me via a friend who got it as a warranty replacement for another model so came without a shock and both my 8.5 x 2.5" fox shocks are fouling on the seat stay joint weld, just above the lower shock bolt. There's very little in it maybe a mm or so but its enough to not let me fit the shock. The joint weld is heavy exactly @ that point so im just gonna file it down to allow clearance. Just asking if anyone else has came across this issue

    you will need a replacement seat stay, some had a very large welded area that interferes with the shock, just contact Transition!
