    SB-95 Rear Triangle replacement

    Anyone replace a rear triangle on their 95? I got a dent in mine from an OTB fall the other day. Just curious how much it cost you.
    That creep can roll, man.

    Crash replacements would be about 300 or so. I remember when my 07 575 carbon rear triangle broke, it was 450 plus another 50 to have it installed. The LBS told me that I would not be able to get the crash replacement warranty if they didn't do the install.

    "dent" ? are you sure you need to worry about it?

    That machine can take a few dents of sizable character and probably not affect much.

    Now, if you completely folded it over, well, that's icky.

    Either way, good job riding hard enough to make that happen.

    (... I wonder if the new carbon-fiber parts would bolt to an otherwise "A" frame ...)

    What Bear said. Mine has more than a couple good sized dents in the rear triangle, some pretty good trail rash, and few smacks around the BB from good-sized rocks getting kicked up on the trail. Just a dent? I would not worry.

    I hear ya. The dent definitely adds some character. Right now, I'm still riding it. I am just trying to get mentally prepared for the cost if I start to see a crack develop.

    If it cracks it will most likely be a weld that fails.

    Well... thanks for this thread. I bashed a dent into my rear triangle, but will keep riding it until it fails (which i doubt it will). This is one tuff machine of a bike. I love it!

    I feel you man. I put a ding (small and cosmetic, but still annoying!) on the top of the top tube of my SB95A on my fourth ride with it. After crying a few oh so manly tears, I rode it for a few weeks to make sure it didn't crack, then slapped a sticker on that bad boy and moved on. Out of sight, out of mind as they say...
