    Pivot Bolt Broke

    In the middle of my ride I noticed the rear triangle was loose and the bottom pivot bolt was coming unscrewed. I headed to the LBS and when I unloaded my bike the pivot bolt fell off. By the looks of it the bolt snapped in half. Anybody have this happen? 2018 Rocky Mountain Altitude.

    I noticed my main pivot bolt was loose on my 2018 Carbon Thunderbolt so I torqued it back to spec. Def a good idea to regularly inspect all bolts for tightness. If mine comes loose again I will update here.

    Thanks for the reply. This is my first Rocky Mountain so I hadn't read up on them coming loose. They say to use loctite on the bolts.

    Is your bolt hollow? I had it happen to my 2017 Element. The old pivot bolts were hollow. Took it to my bike shop and rocky replaced it with a new (non-hollow) one. My shop actually had a few laying around as it's a known issue. Haven't had an issue since I got the replacement.
