    ASR5 rear triangle..

    I've read that this model is known to have bad rears. And a revised version is available. Is there a way to tell which one I have? Are there any visual differences?

    Here is a picture of the newer version. The old version didn't have a radius where the caliper mount meet the swing arm.

    Ours is the "new" one , doesn't matter, it'll crack also .... for today's standard of bikes, this is a weak design ...
