- Just been told my frame is snapped
I took my bike in for a service (spicy 516) only to get a phone call to say that the frame is snapped on the swing arm, its under warranty so will be replaced, not long ago the main frame snapped down near the bottom bracket, so not having a good day, seems to be always in the shop for something, up shot is I am thinking get rid and get a new bike, been toying with the bionicon telsa, I know its not to every ones taste but I do like being able to adjust the geometry, so has any one go one of these, be interested to know what they are likePosted 4 years ago

Took mine for a service on Monday told £225 for service ,then they called today and said frame has a gouge near the bb chainring area and is unsafe and needs to be replaced -so i feel your pain . My wife went mad when i told her ?
A gouge? haha they’re having you on surely!Posted 4 years agojamj1974Subscriber
I can understand paying for shock servicing and even for maintaining hydraulic brakes in terms of bleeding, seal replacement etc… Surely though it makes sense to be able to service the rest of your bike yourself…? I know it takes time and the gaining of skills/experience but surely it pays real dividends in terms of economy and the ability to complete trail side fixes or ad-hoc adjustment/tuning…?Posted 4 years ago
I wish i had the time to do maintenance my self. I am a chef and i work 5 days and nights at 09am till 11pm/11:30pm so i get 2 full days off in which to have a beer ,go shopping be a husband and finally ride my bike ? when im off i just want to ride ,i guess i need to try do basic maintence and clean the bike up? or just buy decent parts that have good seals ?Posted 4 years agofieldyMember
As soon as I read the title I guessed it would have been a Lapierre! A couple of lads who I ride with have had issues. One is on his fourth frame and one is on his second. The LBS has been good with the replacements though.Posted 4 years ago
Even though they are good looking bikes it puts me off getting one!
Mind you, when you have a frame with warning stickers that tell you not to machine wash, tumble dry or iron??? You could question it’s integrity as a mountain bike!mikewsmithSubscriber

As others have said backup is great. See if you can get a refund on the 2x snapped frame. Once is unfortunate…
Try as many as you can and see what comes out in the wash – the thread will continue with I have xxxxxx it’s the bestest. Your current shop should be able to oblige you with some test bikes if they want you to get sorted.Posted 4 years agotimmysSubscriber

What part of that sentence is a question?
