so-building my ti456 with a 183mm M4 at the back is a bad idea then?

The only bikes that never break are ones that aren't ridden enough.
terra - mine has a 180mm Tech M4 on the back.
hammered since sept 08 on rock and mountain - no issues (yet)
It's not just Ti frames... I've had two Pinnacle frames fail in a similar manner within 12 months. Thankfully I now have a different frame (albeit very similar), a Kinesis Maxlight XC Pro2 with far uglier, but 'beefier' welds.
i certainly think Lynskey are a reliable and honest company.
i also think they'd like to protect their product, especially in the UK where Hotlines and On One are pushing their product so heavily now.
it'd be interesting to see what they have to say regarding the concerns on this thread.
Never really heard of many hardtails snapping in this way, its usually the Specialized and Kona style full sus bikes that do it on the chainstay. Think thats to do with braking related forces.
