I was in North Wales this weekend enjoying the fantastic weather on the Marin trail when i hear a loud crack. The bolt holding my chain stay to my rear hub has snapped off (lost and not recovered) and there's a hulking great crack in the piece of metal holding the chain stays together (has that got a name?)
I purchased the bike, a Boardman FS pro, in September 2012 so it is within its 3 year frame warranty. I'm planning on taking it back to Altrincham branch tomorrow (I'm assuming I don't need to take it back to the same branch I purchased it from).
I'm really rooting for Halfords, but I have a sneaking suspicion I'll be leaving the store with a bee in my bonnet tomorrow....
Also I was wondering has anyone else has a similar Boardman frame issue?
