Have we upset the MTB gods?
Re the BMC failure, I read a review of the BMC Trailfox which found a fault with the seatstay bridge bottoming out on the back of the seat tube, causing knocking on big hits. I think BMC know about the problem. Your Speedfox looks to be a similar design so might be worth checking for any impact damage or cracking which could have contributed to the failure? Just an idea hope they get it sorted.Posted 5 years ago
The FS bike pictured is an abomination in the eyes of Nature; the beholder can see that the stresses on the frame are unnatural and go against the laws of physics. Stick to a traditional two-triangle frame as revealed to mankind and thou shalt ride unto the kingdom of Heaven.

Eh? The pivot thingy, which has about a 2:1 leverage, is attached to the seat tube with its fulcrum half way down the length of the tube, which has snapped forwards, bending and breaking the top tube just forward of the brace the manufacturer so thoughtfully added. To add to the stress the long seatpost is twisting the unbraced seat tube back in a rearwards rotational direction.
