LOving my Hemlock and if it goes wrong i'll trust Cy to put it right.
...loving my hemlock, but I am a tad worried that the fecker will snap when I'm somewhere in the middle of nowhere!
Am I the only one who is slightly shocked by this view? As if a frame snapping, never mind at such a critical place, is 'no big deal' and just a matter of getting it replaced with the worst case scenario being a glum walk home?
What happens if someone breaks one doing a 6ft drop for example? It's not as if these frames aren't going to be used for such riding, someone above mentioned using one for DH.
Worse case scenario suddenly becomes smashed ankles or a broken back.
I do like the way the desginer has come on and explained about his product which would give me the confidence to buy one.
Really?! Call me a cynic (because I probably am rather cynical at the best of times) but it doesn't take much for a designer to give a few excuses in technobabble about why it shouldn't have broken, yet the fact still stands: it did.
