Well as ace as yesterday ride was, riding Falls, there was a cost. Just before Frying Pan, it developed a bad creak while pedalling... just like that, silent one moment, creaking like a mofo the next... luckily it was all down and f all pedalling.
Anyway, the chainstay has a crack on top of it, on the right hand side, just behind the brace that joins it to the left side.
I'm the second owner so can't warranty... searching here about welding it, has endless references to Grip Sport... is that still the best option?
In hindsight, I'm real happy it didn't let go on HighVoltage or FlowTown... so, do I get it fixed, or hunt a 2010 Spec Stumpjumper chainstay? Or both?
