    I broke my La Sal Peak, now what?

    I was cleaning my LSP and realized a large crack on the inside of the chainstay. I dont recall crashing or doing anything that wouldve caused that nor am i a particularly aggressive rider. I contacted Fezzari and am waiting to hear back from them.

    I really liked how the bike handled and had no complaints. Thay said Im not sure if I should try something else at this point maybe a v1 Ripmo or Ripmo AF. The Transition Sentinel also looks like it would handle descents well but maybe not climb as well.

    Anyone else break their frame? What did Fezzari end up doing about it? Did you stay on a LSP or move to something else?

    I bet they will probably ship you a new swingarm free of charge.

    I would just get a new part and keep riding the bike. No point in changing bikes since you like how this one rides.
    Safe riding,

    Great to hear. I hoped this would be their response.

    Upon reading this post, I went and inspected mine. Upon pulling away the chain slap protector, it looked like there was a GIANT crack, and my heart stopped. But it was just accumulated dirt. All good on my end.
    I would advise not taking my advice.
