    ASR-5C - Broken Pivot Bolt...

    The main pivot bolt cracked in half on the non-drive side. I had checked the torque to spec about 2 weeks before. Bike is less than 2 months old).



    Anyone else experience this?

    I broke mine about 6 months ago. I didn't feel like I was cranking very hard on it but it snapped right off. My LBS had a spare so I was only down about 15 minutes.

    finally...

    after 3 long weeks (it's been tough- trail conditions in NorCal have been sick) a new bolt is on the way. I'll probably order up a rebuild kit so that I have an extra on hand in case it happens again.
